Kano pays N8bn to indigenous contractors

Governor Abdullah Umar Ganuje has released the sum of N8billion to 500 indigenous contractors as part of outstanding debt owed by the state government.

This was revealed by chairman of the Nigeria Chamber of Indigenous Contractors, Kano State Chapter, Dr. Auduwa Maitangaran, who briefed newsmen yesterday at the NUJ Press Centre.

Maitangaran said though the governor had been gradually paying the contractors to reduce the debt since he came to power, the latest figure is the largest sum they had received so far, adding that the payment was released at the end of last month.

He commended Ganduje for the gesture, saying it has improved the welfare of thousands of employees of the 500 indigenous contractors, who have been struggling to feed their families due to lack of funds.

“It is a great feat for a governor to pay 500 companies at this critical time and this is why we are asking other governors to emulate this gesture. Our greatest benefit is for us to get paid for work done and not to be defrauded by selfish people after we have executed massive projects with our own money,” he said.

Maitangaran also appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to carry local contractors along when executing projects, noting that this would develop their capacity and reduce poverty in the country.

Kudos to you man, you shows a good example for you to pay such amount of money in this unlawful period, that is good heart. The problem started from the previous government as am seeing it not even in his own tenure. And he still go ahead and pay them, you have made some families happy with this act of yours. That's the kind of leader we want not like Gov. Aregbesola and co.

Well,...good one from the government... But stringent measures needs to be put in place to ensure there is financial planning and implementation of projects done by contractors and not the situation that would result in debts for services rendered by contractors
