Ekiti State Universal basic Education Board (SUBEB) has revoked the
contract of 16 contractors handling renovation and construction
projects under the 2017 and 2015 UBEC /SUBEB Intervention project in
the state.

According to a statement made available to newsmen in Ado Ekiti from
the Office of the Executive Chairman of SUBEB, the contracts were
terminated following breach of contract terms by the affected
contractors.

The statement noted that many of the revoked contracts had been
dragging on since March 2020 in contravention of the time frame of the
contractual agreement which stipulated a maximum of 12 weeks for
renovation works under the UBEC/SUBEB intervention projects in the
state.

In a related development, the SUBEB Chairman, Prof. Femi Akinwumi has
also ordered the contractor handling renovation of a block of 6
Classrooms at AUD Pilot Nursery and Primary school Ado-Ekiti to
immediately remove the substandard roofing materials used in the
renovation works in the school and replace them as specified in the
terms agreement or have the contract terminated.

The SUBEB Boss who gave the directive after an on the spot assessment
of ongoing projects in the state, said that the Board discovered that
the contractor had used 0.45mm gauge roofing sheets instead of 0.55mm
contained in the UBEC/SUBEB .

Akinwumi noted that the board recently procured Vanier Slide Calipers
for technical officers in the 16 Local Government Education
Authorities in the state as part of concerted efforts to enforce
standard and ensure that only appropriate roofing sheets are used in
SUBEB projects in the State.
