Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the Agenda 111 project in the Garu District of the Upper East region would be completed and handed over. This is according to Musah Osman, the DCE for Garu.
He made this statement when he spoke to Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show today, Tuesday, January 17, 2023.
Mr. Osman explained that close to a hundred percent of all the materials needed to roof, fence and complete the structure of the building had already been procured by the contractor and were in storage.
“Work on the Agenda 111 project is steady. Their work is about 65 percent complete. All roofing materials have arrived. The contractor and consultant have confirmed that over 99 percent of the roofing materials have all arrived. As of now, they are poised towards the fencing of the place.”
“All beams, I can confirm now, are complete, except the energy area that they are busily working on now,” he said.
Funding, according to the DCE, may not be a big issue as the necessary materials to complete the entire structure have been procured, for the most part.
“Yes, certainly, there are funds available. Every contractual agreement, the contractor would have to be up to the task, and we are lucky as the people of Garu. Our contractor is very steady. Materials were mobilised in advance, and as of now, the roofing materials is over 99 percent mobilised to the site. If there are concerns as to the availability of funds, I would seriously doubt that,” he added.
All things being equal, the project should be complete by the end of May, 2023.
“The project was supposed to span for a period of 3 years. Our contractor is moving that fast and he tells me that in about 4 months, this project should be ready to handover,” he said.
