OYO GOVT PROCURES TRUCK DRILLING RIGS TO MAXIMISE WATER PROVISION.
The Oyo State Government has adopted the report of the committee set up to review projects and contracts signed between 2017 and 2019 by the last administration in the State.
This disclosure was made on Tuesday, June 16, 2020, by the State Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Dr Wasiu Olatubosun, after the State’s weekly Executive Council meeting.
Dr Olatubosun said the Council appreciates what he called ‘a yeoman’s job’ done by the Committee on the review, adding that the report would help the about-to-be-inaugurated State Anti-Corruption Agency to bring individuals involved in acts inimical to economic growth of the State to book.
The Commissioner also revealed that the Council approved the procurement of a new truck mounted rigs with compressor to further promote the administration’s drive towards the provision of portable water to the people.
He noted that the contract was awarded to World Marketer Assisting International Company Ltd at the sum of ₦106,043,750 (One hundred and six million, forty-three thousand, seven hundred and fifty Naira).
