The FCT Administration has warned the contractors handling the maintenance of streetlights in the Federal Capital City to either sit up or have their contracts terminated.
The FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello, who gave the warning during an emergency meeting with the contractors in Wuse I District, Abuja, was represented at the occasion by the Acting Coordinator, Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC), Hajiya Safiya Umar.
Malam Bello reiterated that the FCT Administration would not condone any further lackadaisical attitude from the contractors as they either perform or face outright termination of their contracts, because it’s no more business as usual.
His words: “All streetlight contractors in the Federal Capital City must brace to the terms of their contractors of illuminating the city especially the major streets or face termination.”
According to him, the FCT Administration is not in default of any of their payments as it has met all its contractual agreement, and therefore expects the contractors to be up and doing to fulfill their own obligation.
“Our payments are up to date and therefore we expect effective service as no street in any part of the city should be in darkness, when there is electricity supply by the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company,” he emphasized.
