Plateau State Commissioner of Physical Planning and Urban Development, Hon. Bulus Bot yesterday threatened severe actions against contractors defaulting on their contract agreements.

The Commissioner was particularly mad that some contractors had been provided funds by government but have either deserted their project sites or are slow at executing them.

Hon. Bot who embarked on an unscheduled tour of projects under his ministry within Jos, the Plateau State capital said government was in the business of timely delivering Democratic dividends to its citizens.

As such, it would not hesitate to sanction contractors when public funds paid for projects are not being justified.

The government official was particularly enraged by Jotex Nig. Ltd, a local construction firm handling bridge and street construction projects in Tudun Wada, Jos where work is still below 50% despite financial mobilization paid by government.

The Commissioner was however impressed with a market road construction at Abba na Shehu community in Jos North, awarded to Chinagoanzhao Nig. Ltd.

Although mobilization hadn't been paid as confirmed by the Commissioner, work at the site was placed at 40% completion by the Project Manager, Mr. Jiang Long.

Similarly, street expansion projects at Gangare community were applauded by the Commissioner.

Hon. Bot who paid a condolence visit to the family of a deceased APC Chieftain, Alh. Saleh Hassan pledged to followup on the project and ensure timely payment of contract obligations.

The Gangare Community leader, Ali Umar pledged to provide security to all labourers at the site.

The Commissioner is expected to discuss his observations during the visit with his management and forward his recommendations to the Governor for further actions.
