Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun yesterday summoned the contractors handling the project of the State Judiciary Complex, one of the projects left by his predecessor, Ibikunle Amosun.
Abiodun, who visited the site of the project yesterday, expressed “surprised at the quality and pace of work”, according to a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin.
The statement quoted Abiodun to have said the past government had paid 100 percent for the project, wondering why the project was yet to be completed and delivered.
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.
Abiodun, accompanied by the State Chief Judge, Justice Mosunmola Dipeolu and the Secretary to the State Government, Tokunbo Talabi, said: “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 seat down there when it is raining even in the sun, we need to do some design changes.”
