Wike Queries Ushafa-Bwari Road Contract Sum Variation

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike has faulted the contract sum variation of Ushafa-Bwari road, describing it as very embarrassing and that his administration would not accept it.

The minister made this known yesterday when in the company of the minister of state for the FCT, Mariya Mahmoud and other top management staff of the FCT, visited the Ushafa-Bwari road and Lower Usuma Dam to inspect projects awarded by the FCDA and FCTA.

Wike said it was unfortunate that while they went to the Ushafa-Bwari road, it was very embarrassing to see that the road which was awarded in 2017 was yet to be completed despite the amount of money paid to the contractor.

“This is not what we are going to take. The job was awarded in 2017 at the cost of N20 billion, in 2020 the revised the contract sum to N50 billion. As I speak to you, we have paid almost N50 billion what is outstanding from what the man in charge has said is N900 million.

“Now the N900 million will not be enough to complete the job that they have done about 90 per cent and thereby we move to another variation. This is what we are not going to accept. Even the engineering service, we are going to overhaul the entire system.
