Wushishi (Niger) – Alhaji Suleiman Zungeru, the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Wushishi Local Government Area of Niger, has called on the state government to ensure the completion of the Wushishi-Zungeru electrification project.
Zungeru made the call in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Zungeru, adding that the project would address the poor power supply in the state and country at large.
He said that there was need to direct the contractor to go back to site as work on the project had been abandoned for some months now.
“I am aware that the state government has paid the contractor and I don’t know why the job has suddenly been abandoned.
“In the interest of our people we appealed to the state government to direct the contractor to return to site,” he said.
The chairman said that the contractor’s negligence would not speak well of the current APC-led administration in the state, hence the need for government to wade in.
Zungeru, however, commended Gov. Abubakar Bello, for awarding contract for the construction of Zungeru township road which has reached an advance stage and urged him to do more in improving the infrastructure deficit in the state.
