Gov. Wamakko revokes N1.16bn road contract


Governor Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto State has revoked the contract for the construction of Mai Kulki-Soro-Kalgo road in Binji Local Government Area of the state.

The governor revoked the contract when he paid an unscheduled visit to the project site of the 26.5 kilometre road project awarded in 2011 to Stan and Colimore Nigeria Ltd at the cost of N1.16 billion.

“The project is just 38 per cent complete three years after it was awarded; this is unacceptable,” Wamakko said.

He promised residents of the area that work on the road would be re-awarded to a more competent contractor.
