Engr Nweze Dave Umahi MON
Hon. Minister, Works

"If you want me to pay your mobilisation fee or process your certificate, please obey first. We want to know how you got your POP." Engr Nweze Umahi.

In achieving the directives of the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR, the Honourable Minister of Works, Engr. David Nweze Umahi has directed and appealed to all contractors to move to site within 14 days.

Senator Engr Umahi gave the directive today Wednesday, October 11th, 2023, during a meeting with Contractors, Partners and Stakeholders in the Works Sector at the Ministry's Conference room, Mabushi, Abuja.

In a statement issued and signed by Blessing Lere-Adams, the Director, Press and Public Relations Unit, the Honourable Minister called on contractors to desist from saying what  will be done rather they should do what is expected of them. 

"No program of work, no processing of your certificate and certification of your POP and if there's increase in your contract you have to let us know how. So if you are waiting for payment, I will not pay, if you are waiting for certificate to be signed I will not do it. The truth is, it is our right to ask so that if I am signing any certificate, I am bound to explain. So if they sue me, it is not the Directors. Please give me the privilege to preserve my future by allowing me know. If I carry the Bible or the Qur'an, I will be able to say I know about it," he added.

The Minister expressed displeasure over  where asphalt used is been sourced from, with research showing that the importation of bitumen into the country is not up to five percent.

Umahi said, enough is enough, that Nigerians are tired of game playing; that they want to see good 10km of good roads.
