The Lagos state government has terminated the contract for the construction of a 48-bedroom hotel at the VIP chalets in Badagry.

The administration of Babatunde Fashola, former governor of the state, awarded the contract to Messrs. Anatolia International Limited in 2013.

In a statement on Thursday, Steve Ayorinde, commissioner for information and strategy, said the decision to terminate the contract followed a resolution taken at the state executive council meeting which held on Wednesday.

The statement said the pace of work was not commensurate with the amount already released for the project.

It also cited “inefficiency and overall poor performance” by the contractor as reasons for the contract termination and the subsequent blacklisting of the company.

It maintained that one of the major policy thrusts of the Akinwunmi Ambode administration is tourism and hospitality sector development.

“The inability of Messrs. Anatolia International Limited to key into the vision of the present administration, as part of the efforts to fast-track the development of its tourism sector, necessitated the decision of the state executive council to terminate the contract,” the statement said.

Ayorinde added that the current administration has resolved to bring rapid infrastructural development to the state in a manner that gives zero-tolerance to insouciance and inefficiency.
