All contractors involved in the construction of federal road projects across the country have been paid, the Federal Government has said. According to the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, no contractor is being owed by the government and as a result none of them should delay construction and rehabilitation works on any federal road that is assigned to them.
About two years ago, contractors who handled various federal road projects had complained of being owed billions of naira by the Federal Government, a development that made many of them to abandon their respective project sites.
But in a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by Fashola’s Communications Adviser, Hakeem Bello, the minister stated that government had paid all the contractors now engaged in road projects across the country. Fashola was quoted as saying, "No contractor has any excuse to delay our work. For any contractor that does not perform, we have our remedies.
