Nasir El-RufaiThe Kaduna State Government says it has started compiling lists of defaulting contractors handling various project to blacklist the companies.

The Commissioner for Budget and Planning, Muhammad Abdullahi, made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna on Friday.

Abdullahi said that the blacklist would contain list of contractors that consistently execute poor quality of jobs awarded to them.

He said that contractors, who were slow in project implementation and those who do not even implement at all would never again benefits from any contracts in the state.

“We have already started building the list and Gov. Nasir El-Rufai has asked that we submit it personally to him when we are done.When we do that, it means that these contractors will not be awarded any more contracts in the state for the duration of this administration”, he said.

He said that the step became necessary because the state government did not want contractors that did not have the capacity to deliver to bid for its projects.

“They waste the time and resources of the state and they don’t deliver quality job.

“What we want is a list of contractors that are commendable, dependable, trust worthy and can get the job done”, Abdullahi said.

The ministry had the responsibility of monitoring the implementation of all projects, adding that it does this through its monitoring and evaluation unit called, “The Eyes and Ears of Projects”.

“We go out every week to monitor the contractors; find out where they are and assess the level of work and to equally ensure that the project is being done to specifications.

“We also ensure that there are enough resources to fund the plans, so that they don’t just remain theories on paper”. (NAN)
