Kebbi State House of Assembly joint Committee on Agriculture, Animal health Husbandry and Fisheries, General Administration, Works and Transport and Public Account is visiting abandoned projects across the state.
Alhaji Samaila Salihu-Bui, Chairman of the joint committee, during a visit to the uncompleted Veterinary Hospital Bulasa, on Friday in Birnin Kebbi said the visit was to ensure probity and accountability.
Salihu-Bui, also a member representing Arewa constituency, added that the visit was also to provide an avenue for discussion with contractors handling abandoned projects.
“We embarked on this tour to find out the problems for ceasing projects in spite of their impact toward improving living standard of people in the state.
“There is no reason to stop the veterinary hospital construction, since government had already paid 70 per cent of the project,” he noted.
He ordered the contractor handling the project, Muhammadu Kiruwa, to immediately complete the project to enable people of the state benefit from it.
In his remarks, the contractor, also the National President of Miyatti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association, assured the committee of returning site soon to complete the project.
Kiruwa said the company would resume work as soon as he discuss with the engineers from the Ministries of Animal Health Husbandry and Fisheries as well as Works and Transport.
