A non governmental organisation, Ibadan Ko ‘Ya Anti Corruption Coalition has expressed fear over the delay by the government in approving and releasing names of contractors to handle some world bank drainage projects in Ibadan, Oyo State.
The fear came as the Oyo state government is lobbying the World Bank to undermine the procurement strategy and award the contracts to companies linked to the governor and his cronies in excess of #7 billion naira above the substantially responsive lowest bidders in the four lots
The group, in a statement signed by their coordinator and secretary, Messrs Oladele Morufu and Joel Adeoye respectively, is calling on well-meaning Nigerians, especially the people of Ibadan and Oyo State in general to prevail on the state government from further delaying the announcement and submission of names of qualified contractors to the World Bank, sponsoring the projects before it is too late.
In the statement, it was said that “the government has refused to name the qualified contractors who participated in the bid advertised on August 6, 2020 and opened publicly on Friday October 2, 2020 to handle the project tagged, ” Ibadan Urban Flood Management Project”.
