The contractor working on Builsa South’s Agenda 111 project may see his contract terminated if he’s unable to pick up pace of work on the project. It has come to light that the contractor has been served with an official warning and a recommendation of termination from the National Coordinator for the Agenda 111 projects.
This came to light when the DCE for the Builsa South District, Daniel Kwame Gariba spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show recently.
Mr. Gariba explained that he was unhappy with the progress of work on the project.
“For the Agenda 111, we have the main contractor and the other contractors, usually two others who take other portions of the work. One contractor is doing the accommodation for the nurses and is at roofing level. There is another one also working on other parts. He is also on site.”
“Our main challenge was the main contractor. The number of site meetings that we have had spoken to him [but he hadn’t paid heed]. So I eventually had to make a formal complaint to the coordinator of the Agenda 111 projects. They served him with a warning letter. They followed it up with a recommendation for termination. Shortly after that, I saw him on site working. But as at last week when I checked, he was no longer on site. The main contractor is the main challenge,” he said.
Mr. Gariba argued that the contractor cannot use the lack of funds as an excuse because the President had shown an immense level of commitment to ensuring the completion of the projects, as such, monies have been made to contractors who have made requests and reached reasonable completion levels.
