The Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal has revoked no fewer than five major contracts in the state, including a General Hospital in Wamakko town awarded by his predecessor, Alhaji Aliyu Wamakko.
This was contained in a statement issued on Friday by the state Commissioner for Health, Dr Ali Inname at a briefing in Government House, Sokoto.
The statement listed four other contracts revoked by Governor Tambuwal at the Murtala Mohammed Hospital as follows: two additional blocks of wards, landscaping of the hospital, construction of 47 staff quarters and that of the completion of a special work at the hospital which comprises a theatre, mortuary, laundry and others.
Garba who said that the developments followed the weekly State Executive Council meeting chaired by Tambuwal noted that the contracts were cancelled because the jobs had been abandoned.
He said; “The contracts were revoked because the jobs were abandoned by the contractors while assuring that due process will be followed in re-awarding the contracts to more competent and dedicated contractors.”
