Alhaji Mustapha Shahuri, Minister of State for Power, Works and Housing, has warned contractors against bribing controllers and engineers overseeing projects.
“Most jobs get poorly handled because the supervisors are bribed to look the other way while specifications are being ignored and quality compromised.
“Contractors handling road projects are the worst culprits in this respect; we have told them that we shall not accept any shoddy job from anyone,” Shahuri told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Friday in Minna.
He advised job handlers to adhere strictly to contractual agreements, and declared that state controllers of the ministry and supervisors monitoring projects would be held responsible for shoddy jobs under their care.
The minister warned government officials fond of receiving gratification to desist from that, saying that anyone would face the full wrath of the law.
