Paul Obiajunwo Port Harcourt
Ten contractors of Rivers State Waste Management Authority perceived to be loyalists of the All Progressive Congress (APC), by the sole administrator, Felix Obuah was yesterday sacked for alleged inability to comply with agency directives.
In a statement yesterday signed by Jerry Needam, media aid to the Sole administrator, Felix Obuah, said the ten contractors were sacked for disobedient to agency’s directives.
The statement further said the ten contractors were more interested on the debts owed them by the out-gone Amaechi’s administration than to obey the agency directive to go back to site.
It said, it is in the light of the flagrant disregard of this agreement that the Agency deems it expedient to revoke the contracts forthwith in line with the order of the new Sole Administrator.
Obuah noted the Agency had on Friday, June 5, 2015 agreed with the concerned contractors to mobilize their Staff back to site and also warned them that failure to obey his order would affect their contract appointments.
He said the Agency will not tolerate any acts of sabotage in the efforts of Governor Nyesom Wike to restore Port Harcourt, the State capital to its Garden city status.
Contractors affected include, Chiz Engineering Services, Flees Global, Lemonvare Nig Ltd, Adule Integrated Services, Green Town Technologies, Eki Global Concern Nig Ltd. Others are Done Young Nig Ltd, O. C. And Sons Ltd, Deen Construction Company Ltd and Magnum And Hunter Ltd.
Responding over the sack, one of the contractors, Mr. GoodLuck Douglas of O. C and Sons Ltd, a company owned by G.U Ake, a supporter of Governor Chibuike Amaechi, said the purported allegation against his company is unbelievable.
Douglas said his company has a clean record and had been working tirelessly in all the site allocated to them.
“I don’t know what we have done to them, before the government took over we had been doing our job, even the sites the Sole administrator is accusing us of not maintaining is not sites in our control, we are not in-charge of Airport road and Obio/Akpor market.”
