Zamfara Government has set up a seven-man committee to monitor projects implementation as part of efforts to ensure quality performance and speedy execution.
The Chairman of the committee, Alhaji Lawal Liman, disclosed this while inaugurating members of the committee in Gusau on Thursday.
He said Gov. Abdul’aziz Yari approved the setting up of the committee during the state’s executive council meeting on Wednesday.
According to him, the committee will work with the state Ministry of Works and other Ministries,
Departments and Agencies to ensure effective monitoring of projects.
He added that the state government, from 2011 to date, spent billions of Naira to complete inherited projects and do new ones.
“We have many ongoing projects worth billions of Naira being carried out by the current state government across the state.
“We have to closely monitor the progress of these projects to avoid shoddy jobs by contractors,” Liman said and urged contractors handling the projects to work in line with the contract agreement.
He said the state government would no longer accept poorly executed projects.
Liman urged contractors to follow contract agreements while handling projects and called on benefitting communities to monitor the projects in their areas.
