From Musah Umar Farouq
The Upper West Regional Minister, Bede A. Ziedeng, has appealed to consultants and contractors to execute quality work on government projects in the region. According to him, consultants have full responsibly of the work they execute, and that the people would not benefit if work is not done well.
The occasion was an inspection tour of the region by the Minister, during which he visited the sites of ongoing water projects.
The two districts, which benefited for the Small Town Water Project, are Goripe and Mamwa in the Wa East, and Wa West townships, which were awarded on contract in March 2014, and are expected to have been completed by December 2014.
The Regional Minister was accompanied by the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) Chief Director, Mr. J. B. Atogiba, Regional Economic Planning Officer, Mr. Osman, Regional Director of Community Water and Sanitation Agency, Mr. Siabi Worlanyo Kwadjo, and the Director in charge of Water and Sanitation at the RCC, Mr. Adam Walid.
The District Chief Executives, Mr. Dasaana N.S. Adamu in Wa West and Mr. Abdul Karimu Abudu for Wa East, led the Regional Minister and his entourage to inspect the Small Town Water Projects in the two districts. Bede Ziedeng has, therefore, threatened to blacklist any contractor who fails to go on site or complete projects awarded, and further asked contractors and stakeholders in the region to be responsible in their call to duty.
The Regional Minister expressed gratitude to some contractors, and appealed to them to speed up work to enable the districts get water by December this year.
