Gov Fintiri approves N1 billion for road contract variations
The Adamawa government has approved N1.019 billion contract variations to fast-track the completion of 25.9km Banjiram-Chikila and Mararrabar Dumne roads.
The Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Umar Pela, told journalists in Yola on Wednesday that the contract was awarded to Hydro Source and Resource Nigeria Ltd with 18 months’ completion period.
He said the project’s initial cost stood at N1.1 billion, adding it was reviewed upward due to a hike in construction materials prices, which enabled the government to expand the project’s scope to facilitate the provision of quality road infrastructure in the state.
Stating that the roads are in the Guyuk local government, the commissioner said the government adopted a proactive monitoring mechanism to ensure project execution according to specifications.
Meanwhile, the Adamawa government has approved N288 million for procuring 12,600 bags of NPK fertilisers for the 2022/2023 dry season activities.
Mr Pela said the contract was awarded to Gidan-Gina Agro Chemicals Nigeria Ltd.
According to him, the gesture aims to mitigate the flood disaster’s effects and enhance food security.
