The Plateau State Government says cash flow restrictions from banks have slowed down most of its project across the State.

The Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development has particularly experienced delays in delivering most of its projects due to difficulties encountered by its contractors in accessing funds from banks, Commissioner Bulus Bot said.

The Urban Development Commissioner during a tour of projects in Jos the Plateau State capital, Friday told journalists that the State Government had paid mobilization fees to all its contractors to enable them start and complete their projects in good time.

"It took the intervention of His Excellency, Gov. Simon Lalong of the State for the problem to be resolved," said.

Right now, most contractors are back to site, but with limited time to deliver, the Commissioner stated.

According to him, the contractors handling the Tudun Wada Sabon Gari - Mado Market road construction with spur to Kabong as well as those handling Anwan Rimi - Angwan Rogo and Gangare city roads were given one week after the inspection to deliver their contracts.

The speed with which the Government wants to have the projects delivered however has nothing to do with next weekend's rerun elections, the Commissioner explained.

"We have a contract with the people and politics or no politics, we are under obligation to deliver," Bot said.
