Road Projects: Use Concrete Technology Or Have No Job – Works Minister Warns Contractor

The Minister of Works, Senator David Umahi, on Friday, said he was ready and set for a fight with all federal contractors who are resisting the use of concrete technology in the execution of road projects in the country.

This was as he admonished contractors to be reasonable with costing quotes and also seek ways to cut their projects into phases to enhance easy assessment and monitoring of progress made.

It was gathered that the Minister stated this during a meeting with contractors handling projects in the North-West.

Umahi noted that the use of asphalt by some of the contractors is a source of funds depletion for the government and any contractor who is not ready to work with the concrete technology will have no jobs offered to them by the ministry.

The minister commended his predecessor, Babatunde Fashola, for doing a “great” job.

The contractor handling the ongoing work on the Abuja-Kaduna Road also received commendations from the new minister, who also expressed concerns about the slow pace of the work and the overly technical design by the contractor
