“COMPLETE PROJECTS ON SCHEDULE OR RISK NOT BEING PAID” —– CHIEF DIONGOLI
Contractors handling sports-related government projects have been given the marching orders to step up efforts to meet prescribed deadline or risk not being paid for the next milestone.
Bayelsa State Commissioner for Sports Development, Chief Ebikitin Diongoli handed down the warning while addressing contractors at the Bayelsa State Football Academy, Angalabiri in Sagbama Local Government Area shortly after inspection of projects there.
The commissioner, who expressed delight over the performance of some contractors, however had cause to lambast others for poor performance, stressing that contractors who fail to complete their second milestone on schedule will not be paid for the next milestone.
He said the purpose of the project inspection tour was not to witch-hunt anybody but to ensure that contractors were on ground at their project sites and also to ascertain the level of job done.
He urged the contractors to ensure they do quality jobs that will stand the test of time to complement the good intentions of the state government in establishing the sports facility.
The commissioner also inspected projects at the Bayelsa State Sports Academy, Asoama in Kolokuma Opokuma Local Government Area of the state.
With the Commissioner on the project monitoring team were the Head of Administration Department, Mrs. Grace T. Alagoa, Head of Planning, Research and Statistics, Sampson Poripo and the Head of Sports, Mrs. Josephine Amakuro.
