Nasarawa Assembly committee tasks SUBEB on project monitoring



Nasarawa State House of Assembly Committee on Education, has tasked the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) to ensure effective supervision of ongoing school rehabilitation projects in the state.

Mr Daniel Ogazi, the Chairman of the Committee gave the charge on Tuesday in Lafia when the management of SUBEB appeared before it.

Ogazi said the call was imperative to ensure that contractors adhered strictly to project specifications.

He said that effective supervision of the projects by SUBEB would not only ensure quality works rather enhance effective  utilisation of the government’s resources.

The chairman noted that the committee invited the management of SUBEB due to some defects observed on some of the projects during its oversight functions.

Ogazi said: “We have decided to summoned you due to some defects in some of the ongoing renovations of primary school projects discovered when we went on our oversight functions.

“Our aim is to ensure that the right things are done in order to create an enabling environment for learning and teaching.

“Some of the contractors has failed to adhered strictly to their projects’ specifications as some of the work was poorly done.

“It is in view of this that we are calling on the management of SUBEB to ensure effective supervision of the ongoing projects to ensure that quality jobs are done in the interest of the education sector and for the overall development of the country”.

Ogazi directed contractors to correct the observed defects in the projects or risk sanctioning, and also ordered contractors who were yet to start work to mobilise to the project sites on March 26 or risk revocation.

Also speaking, Alhaji Mohammed Dan’Azumi, Executive Chairman of SUBEB assured the readiness of the board to ensure effective supervision of the ongoing projects in the state.

Dan’Azumi commended the committee for being up and doing in inspecting school projects in the state.
