Governor Benedict Ayade has expressed his disappointment over the inability of contractors handling refuse collection and disposal to act according to contractual terms.

The governor expressed his feelings while speaking to journalists at the site of a garbage collection bin which was filled to capacity with extra garbage around the bins along Jebs road in Calabar South local government area as part of his inspection tour.

The governor who was visibly unhappy with the situation on ground said “The picture is very clear to me, my candid opinion is that the contractor is unable to deliver on contractual terms”. The governor also added that “obviously the scope of the work is beyond the carrying capacity of the contractor” also reeling out steps to be taken. His words “It is evident that the solution architecture is to provide an alternative contractor, split the contract into smaller units so that more contractors will be involved and each section of the town will have a different contractor.

“That way we have a spot on hands on kind of situation while government on her own part will have a eyes on hands off approach (thereby) creating opportunities for people to work”. The governor said the state cannot afford to accommodate greedy contractors who clean up only the areas that the governor will pass.

“Accordingly I will be giving a standing instruction to ensure all this comes to an end today”, he directed the LG Chairman Mrs. Majorie Asuquo to “bring the contractor to me now and we are going to terminate or shrink the contract clearing. It is possible to deliver while rallying round to find me young businessmen from this local government.”

When asked if the inspection was going to continue, he replied ” this will continue as far as we continue to have the complaints, I will push it until those complaints become compliments”.
