Tambuwal pledges to complete inherited projects
From Umar Danladi Ado, Sokoto
The Sokoto State Government has reiterated its commitment to the completion of all ongoing projects inherited from former Governors Attahiru Bafarawa and Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko.
Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal disclosed this while briefing newsmen shortly after he paid an unscheduled inspection visit to the site of the ongoing construction of Isa Division of the High Court of Justice Complex awarded in 2006.
Tambuwal said that it is the cardinal policy of his administration to complete ongoing inherited projects, since large sums of monies have been injected such projects.
He therefore explained that after reviewing the contracts for the construction of three Zonal Divisions of the High Court of Justice awarded by the Bafarawa Administration at Isa, Gwadabawa and Tambuwal, the State Government decided to complete them.
Governor Tambuwal said that the sum of N226million would be expended on each of the three projects.
He, however, expressed satisfaction with the level and quality of the project, saying that the High Court Complex in Sokoto is also being renovated and upgraded by the State Government, adding that N525million would be expended on the project.
He further said that the decision to upgrade the complex is to improve the quality of justice in the state, stressing that the completion of ongoing inherited projects should not be politicised.
