Oyo to revoke four road contracts

Oyo State Governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde has declared that he would not mind breaking some toes if it would aid his determination to serve the ordinary people of Oyo State.

The Oyo State government said on Monday that four contracts would be terminated for failing to meet up with the performance specifications and schedule.

Prof. Raphael Afonja, the State Commissioner for Public Works and Transports, made this known in Ibadan.

It was reported that Governor Seyi Makinde recently said that the administration was compiling the list of non-performing contractors in the state.

He lamented the agony being experienced by people living in the affected areas where road construction works were ongoing.

Speaking with newsmen on the ongoing road projects in the state, Afonja said: “We have got complaints across the state about the pace and quality of work done by these contractors.”
