Delta State Govt Releases N30bn To Contractors

Delta State government

The Delta State government has released N30 billion for payment of outstanding certificates owed contractors in the state. 

The commissioner for works (rural and riverine roads) Mr Charles Aniagwu, disclosed this during an interview with journalists after inspecting projects at Emevor and Evwreni in Isoko North and Ughelli North local government areas of the state. 

Aniagwu commended Governor Sheriff Oborevwori for the approval, adding that it would encourage contractors to put in their best to deliver their projects on schedule. 

According to him, not too long ago, Governor Oborevwori approved the payment of almost N30billion to different contractors, which is why many contractors have moved back to site. 

“We are already making plans in no distant time to continuously pay so that contractors can continue to work and our people continue to get value for the jobs we have awarded for the ease of movement across the local government areas.

“We are not having any challenge and l am sure the contractors are doing quite fine and areas where they need us to fast-track payment of interim certificates we have assured them that we will speed up the process so that at the end of the day nothing stalls the work they are doing,” he said. 

He commended the youths of Emevor community for cooperating with the contractor, stressing that government would continue to sensitise the people to take ownership of projects executed in their areas.
