Osun State governor Rauf Aregbesola has assured the people that his administration will ensure the completion of all ongoing projects in the state, including the mega-schools.
According to the director of Bureau of Communication and Strategy, Semiu Okanlawon, the governor stated this during an unscheduled inspection tour of the ongoing project of Ilesa High School.
He directed the contractors of the ultra-modern schools across the state to accelerate work in their various sites.
Aregbesola noted that it would be unfortunate and regrettable if the contractors handling school projects failed to complete and hand over the schools to the state within the agreed period.
He added that schools under construction were financed with the Sukuk bond, saying there was no excuse for the contractors not to accelerate work pace.
The governor had, earlier in the week, visited Community Elementary/Middle School, Dada Estate, Osogbo, Osogbo High School, Ataoja School of Science, Osogbo and New Model High school in Ede.
The governor said he would leave no stone unturned to ensure that all the ongoing school projects were delivered in no distant time to enhance the re-classification exercise of the state government.
Aregbesola charged the contractors to keep the contractual agreement with the state government by using the recommended materials for the school building project, noting that government would not shift ground on the set requirement for the projects.
He chided contractors for what he described as slow pace of work on site, pointing out that he would continually pay unscheduled visit to site to ensure that contracts awarded by government were properly monitored.
The governor frowned at the contractors handling Osogbo and Ilesa High schools, noting that the pace of work by the contractors was too slow as most of the expected works at the sites were not encouraging.
