” For this reason, I want to tell you that we have revoked this contract and we shall get a more serious contractor to finish this project in no distant future”, Governor Mohammed who was foaming, said.

The governor said the essence of the 3 days monitoring exercise was to put an eye and ensure that contractors did not short-changed the State government.

“I’m not here to joke, I’m elected to work for the people of Bauchi State, therefore we will not tolerate instances where contractors will collect money and abandon the projects halfway”, the governor reiterated.

Some of the projects inspected by the governor Include; 250 housing units in Misau LGA, Jalam, Dambam and Misau roads, Udubo to Gamawa road, Zaki Palace among others.
