The senator representing Adamawa north senatorial district in the National Assembly, Senator Binta Masi Garba has called on the contractor handling the rehabilitation of Mubi-Madagali road/bridges, to fast-tract the construction of the roads and three bridges that links the local government.
Binta made the call while speaking to the Project Manager at Uba, during a visit to the site to inspect ongoing projects.
The senator said,
“I am impressed by the prompt resumption of the contractors to site when the contract was awarded.
“However, I am not impressed by the slow pace of the contractor handling the rehabilitation of the Mubi-Madagali road/bridges, hence I am demanding for acceleration of work.ADVERTISEMENT
“The reconstruction of the Yola-Mubi, and Mubi- Gwoza roads was awarded in 2017, and it is unfortunate that we are in second year, the project has still not been done as expected.
“As the senator representing the area where this contract is awarded, I am concerned, and that is why I came here today to assess things by myself.
“Myself and my constituents are not happy with the progress of work being done here and I think it is in the interest of everybody to ensure that this work is completed and very soon too.ADVERTISEMENT
“As the Senator representing this Senatorial District, I will try and reach out to the authorities in charge to find out what the problems are. If it is a problem of funding or a budget-related issue, then there are certain things that we can do, so that by October or November, the three bridges can be completed, and the road.
“If the problem is from the contractor, then I will report him to the Minister of works and his team, so that they can take any necessary action that will accelerate the pace of work.”ADVERTISEMENT
