Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, has issued a warning to contractors overseeing projects in the country's capital, emphasizing that they must repay funds for any substandard work completed.
Wike said this while conducting the flag-off exercise in Paikon Kore Community, Gwagwalada Area Council, in the FCT on Thursday.
He said the road project is among the 30km roads that are set to be constructed in the six area councils of the FCT.
The minister also assured of the availability of funds for the projects and called for diligence and good quality job from the contractors, warning that he will also visit the site to ascertain the quality and pace of work.
“I will not tell you when I will come here for supervision. And let me tell you, I will not also depend on the report submitted by the Acting Director of STDD. What I will depend on is what I have seen with my eyes.
“Don’t make the mistake of thinking that I will not come here. I will come here and see what you are doing and if you don’t do it well, you will pay back my money, ” he said.
Wike further said: “Mr President directed me to let you know that the Renewed Hope Agenda is not by mere talking. Renewed Hope Agenda is for you to see that we are ready to bring back hope to our people.
“We are ready to bring back hope to the rural populace. We are ready to make our people in the rural areas comfortable. And one of those things that will make them comfortable is to give them access to the road.”
