With the recent charge by Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, to contractors in the state to sit up towards completion of their projects or pack out, a similar charge has been placed by the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Elder Godsday Orubebe to contractors handling construction work at the various skills acquisition centers in the Niger Delta region to increase the pace of their work or face revocation of their contracts.
The minister made this declaration during a one-week inspection tour of the skills acquisition centres in the region.
Elder Orubebe who was visibly vexed, particularly with the three indigenous contractors, Tie One Nig. Ltd, Messrs La-Clearance Nig. Ltd and Pijolo Ventures handling construction work at Tuomo Community in
said: “I am particularly disappointed with what is on ground. I would be back in two weeks to see the level of work on this site and if we find no appreciable improvement, we will have to review your contract. I have seen that the pace at which you are going cannot in any way match with the vision of Mr. President to transform the Niger Delta in the shortest time possible.” Delta State
