The Oyo State Government has decried the poor quality of job executed by the contractor handling the 2017 FGN-UBEC/OYOSUBEB intervention project at Celestial Church of Christ High School, Ibadan.
The Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr Nureni Adeniran expressed this dissatisfaction during an on-the-spot inspection to sites of the projects in Ibadan on Tuesday, February 4, 2020.
Dr Adeniran, while speaking with Newsmen at the School, located at Oke-Ado, Ibadan, described the job as ‘shoddy,’ revealing that the State Government, would not tolerate inferior jobs by any contractor.
He appealed to contractors to always consider the lives of children and staff members who would occupy School buildings while carrying out their jobs.
According to him: “Governor Seyi Makinde’s administration cherishes lives of these children and we will not permit this kind of job, which lacks quality. As such the contractor must return to the site to correct anomalies on the building.”
While noting that there were several cracks on the school building, he also pointed at columns on the fences which were not copped, for proper beautification; expressing dissatisfaction at the failure of the contractor to install security lights at the school to serve as checks against any intended burglary.
Meanwhile, the Chairman at the inspection visit, hinted that St. Michael’s Primary School, Apata, Ibadan is a beneficiary of the 2018 intervention projects.
This, he said, was in fulfillment of his promise that the School would, as a matter of urgency, receive a block of 3 classrooms, four-compartment of toilets and a borehole.
