Oyo State Govt Set To Revoke Unexecuted Contracts Of 22 Firms

The contracts would be terminated following a breach of contract terms.

Yesterday, Oyo State Government stated its intentions to revoke unexecuted contracts on renovation and construction projects, under its 2012-2018 UBEC/SUBEB Intervention Project from defaulting contractors in the state.

Dr. Nureni Adeniran, The Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) while speaking to contractors in Ibadan stated that it was in line with directives from the Universal Basic Education Commission, Abuja, stating that the contracts would be terminated following a breach of contract terms.

He said: “The message here is clear the job has taken too long, your failure to deliver on the agreed dates is affecting the wellbeing of our children, we will revoke the contract. We have issued several warnings, this is about the third time. We need to revoke the contract and give those that will do the job. The guideline is clear and we are not going to compromise.

The SUBEB boss who met the contractors alongside other members of the Board, queried the rationale behind the contractors’ refusal to deliver on time despite the mobilization fee government paid them.

Adeniran noted that as part of concerted efforts to enforce standards as well as ensure that there are only appropriate execution of projects the Board in 2019 did not revoke the contracts despite that they were awarded by the former administration.
