The Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, Thursday threatened to report erring contractors in the state to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after the November 2021 deadline for completion of contracts.

 He said the government won’t hesitate to revoke unexecuted contracts on renovation and construction projects, under its 2012-2018 UBEC/SUBEB Intervention Project from defaulting contractors in the state.

 The executive chairman of Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr Nureni Adeniran, handed over the governor’s warning at a meeting with the contractors.

 He noted that many of the contracts, including those awarded by the previous administration, had been dragging since 2018, adding that it was in contravention of the time frame of the contractual agreement which stipulated two weeks for completion of borehole and maximum of 24 weeks for completion of model schools.
