Gombe State Governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya earlier today moved round Gombe Metropolis to inspect some ongoing projects with a view to ascertaining the level of progress, quality and the due time for delivery.

While speaking at the Mega Park, Governor Inuwa said the project which started in 2012 by the immediate past administration was abandoned, with the claim that the park had been completed and even commissioned.

The Governor explained that at the time the project was said to have been completed and commissioned, it was only about 39% completed, saying the Gombe Metropolitan Mega Park is more of a civil work, than the building which the immediate past administration hurriedly erected.

“But today we thank God we have seen where we are. It is now about 70% completed, including civil and building work, our target to the contractors is for the project to be completed by December 2021. That means we shall finish what they failed to finish in 7 years by the grace of God in 1 year”.

The Governor charged the contractors to work round the clock so that they meet the deadline for the delivery of the project as his administration cannot wait to have all motor parks in Gombe metropolis move to the Gombe Metropolitan Mega Park especially the Bauchi motor park, where government hopes to commence the construction of a befitting Secretariat for the State civil servants.

He said his administration will not fail the people and therefore called on the contractors to work according to schedule without compromising quality of the project.

While thanking the people of the State for the support and solidarity extended to him, the Governor assured that his administration will not leave any project unfinished as citizens of the State deserve all the developmental paraphernalia to enjoy the dividends of democracy.
