Contractor handling the N30 billion Akure-Ado Ekiti highway project, Dantata and Sawoe, has instituted a legal action against the Federal Government for terminating the contract and reawarding same to two new contractors.

 

N2 billion was said to have been released to the contractor out of the contract sum, before it was terminated and reawarded.

Former Ekiti State governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi had confirmed that only N2 billion was released by the Federal Government to the contractor.

But the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola recently stated that the contract has been re-awarded after the initial contractor failed to secure the needed fund to prosecute the road project.
