Governor Ifeanyi Okowa said that the state government may terminate the contract of the electricity supply project awarded to Mosogar in Ethiope West Local Government Area of Delta.

He stated this in Mosogar during the funeral rites of the Ovie of Mosogar, Samson Imoyin-Omene, Udurhie I.

According to him, the project may be terminated over the poor performance of the contractor.

Okowa said that he was disturbed to hear that the project had continued to suffer unnecessary delays on account of the ineptitude of the contractor.

Soon, the state government would take steps to terminate and re-award the electricity project to a more competent contractor, he added.

The governor assured residents of the Mosogar community of the government’s support for the rehabilitation of its internal roads.

“Let me say that I am disappointed to hear that the project has continued to suffer delays after my approval.

“If after one year plus and the project is still not delivered then it truly deserves to be terminated. Let me assure you that we will deal with the issue,” he said.

In his address of welcome, the traditional prime minister and Otota of Mosogar Kingdom, Chief Ighoyota Amori, said the funeral symbolises the end and the beginning of a new era in the kingdom as preparation for the future for the enthronement of a new king.

Amori urged the state government to terminate and re-award the contract for the 2.5MVA Transformer to energise the Mosogar electricity network.

Also present at the funeral were Chief James Ibori, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, and members of the National and State House of Assembly, among other dignitaries.
