Shema awarded N7bn contracts in ‘funny way’– Masari
About N7 billion liability on contracts that were awarded by the immediate past administration are being verified, Governor Aminu Masari has said.
Speaking after inspecting an ongoing project, Masari said most of the contracts were awarded by the past administration in a “funny way” and that it was after they had lost the election.
He lamented that all the roads constructed in the state in the past two years have washed off.
“The past government, fully aware of the dwindling revenue decided to award these contracts but we shall do all we can since it has been entered into on our behalf to ensure it is done according to specification, he said.
He added: “Few days ago, we met with the contractors since an agreement has been entered between us to know what is on ground and how best to go about ensuring the right thing is done”, he said.
