Babatunde Fashola, minister of works, power and housing, asked the contractors to improve the quality of the house they built in Birnin Kebbi.
On an inspection visit to the project sites, the minister said the federal government will not accept the project if it is not carried out within specifications.
He observed that most of the roofing of the bungalows in the Federal Housing Estate and road culverts were not done properly.
“The roofing is not standard and road culverts are not properly done. They have to reconstruct some of these buildings because we cannot accept them; their roofs are not well constructed,” he said.
He also expressed dissatisfaction for the constructed Jega-Yauri road saying he was not satisfied with the narrow culverts.
“I am not satisfied with these culverts, you have to reconstruct them,” he said.
“The government has overcome the challenges of funding but is now faced with the challenge of getting the project done in compliance with contractual agreement.
“With all clear intention, we cannot do the work, we have to entrust the contractors to do the work for us hence they should do it according to the agreement.”
