Ekiti State Urban Renewal Agency has terminated the beautification contracts awarded to two contractors in the state.
The Chairman of the agency, Mr. Babatunde Fakoyede, stated this while inspecting the projects.
According to a statement by the agency’s Press Officer, Mrs. Omolara Alokan, the projects affected were the one on the Ojumose to Okesa Junction, being handled by Aditeuro Solution Nigeria Ltd and the Ado Ekiti to Ikere Ekiti project being handled by BeeDeeKay Consult.
Although the statement was silent on the reasons for the revocation, the chairman urged contractors handling other projects in Ado Ekiti to endeavour to meet the deadline for the completion of the projects.
Expressing displeasure at the pace of work on the projects, Fakoyede noted that it was unacceptable for contractors that had been mobilised to continue to be nonchalant in executing the jobs.
He commended the contractor handling the fencing of the Christ’s School for doing a good job, but urged him to complete the work on time.
Fakoyede said 120 open shops were built at Agric Olope to accommodate traders displaced at the Bisi Egbeyemi Market while 140 lockup shops were also provided for other traders.
