Oyo Govt Orders Contractor out of Site After Termination of Contract

The Oyo State Government has asked the former contractor handling the Ibadan circular road, ENL Consortium, to stop all activities on the construction site with immediate effect, following the initial notice of termination of contract on August 31st, 2020.

The Commissioner for Public Works and Transport, Prof Dahud Sangodoyin visited the construction site to restate the Government’s stance and urged the contractor to evacuate the construction site as its services were no longer needed, as reflected in the disengagement letter.

Sangodoyin, who spoke with newsmen after the visit to the site, said the consortium’s contract was terminated after the progress of work was highly unsatisfactory within the timeframe of the contract.

He maintained that the work completed was below 10% after over three years of award and over one year after expected day of completion.

The State Commissioner said the project was valuable to the State economically and infrastructurally and would be re-awarded to a competent contractor who he said would deliver value and work within the terms of agreement and time frame of contract.

“The circular road is part of the development agenda of Governor Makinde, so we won’t abandon it but we have terminated the contract with the contractor on the job and we are going to open another phase to award to a competent contractor,” he said.

It will be recalled that the 32.2km road was awarded in May 2017, while construction commenced in September 2017 and was scheduled to be completed by 18th March, 2019 before the official contract termination order.
