OGUN: Gov Abiodun summons contractors handling Judiciary Complex approved by Amosun

OGUN: Amosun's finance commissioner tackles Abiodun, says he inherited N18.3bn

The Governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun has reportedly summoned the contractors handling the State Judiciary Complex, one of the projects approved by immediate-past governor, Ibikunle Amosu.

While visiting the site of the building which was one of Amosun’s “Legacy Projects” commissioned by President Muhammadu Buhari on May 25, 2019, Governor Abiodun expressed surprise “at the quality and pace of work”.

In statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, on Wednesday, Abiodun wondered why the project was yet to be completed and delivered after the past government had paid 100 percent for the project.

According to the statement, the governor described the quality and design as “flawed,” and summoned the contractors, Menterota Limited, to see him immediately to justify why they delayed in delivering the complex wholly and “why you are asking for variation after being fully paid.”

“But this job was fully paid for by the previous paid administration?,” Abiodun reportedly asked.

The governor said he was reportedly prompted to visit the complex as the state judiciary was set to host a National Judicial Conference at the venue in September.

“In my opinion, I think that the design itself has some flaws, not so sure about the quality of finishing I am seeing, but again, I feel that once we sit down with the contractors, both the civil and the contractors handling the fixtures, we should be able to work something out, there might be some design changes around here.

“As you can see, there are some pipes exposed, they look like designs from the sixties, you can also see rain water gathering on the floor, the receptionist cannot sit down there when it is raining even in the sun, we need to do some design changes,” he added.
