Gov. Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State on Monday inspected the ultra-modern Karu Bus Terminal, as part of activities to mark his one year in office.
Sule, who was accompanied by his Deputy, Dr Emmanuel Akabe and other top government functionaries, expressed satisfaction with the quality of work done so far on the project.
Sule, however, charged the contractor to increase the pace of work, to regain the lost ground due to the COVID-19 lockdown in the state.
“The bus terminal building is a prime project for this administration and it is located in a very key area.
“Now, what we have to do is to expedite action to ensure that we regain the lost ground due to COVID-19 lockdown.
“I am more interested in the quality of work at the moment; you know we have set certain standard and I strongly believe that the project is meeting our set standard.
“It is a major project for us, that is the reason we are doing the best we can to ensure that it meets the set standard and quality,” he said.
Earlier, Mr Shehu Turku of Canonic Associates, the consultancy firm handling the project, said that the bus terminal was designed and built with 900-vehicle parking capacity.
Turku stated that the project was done 30 per cent, promising to complete it within the one year stipulated time.
“We are given one year to complete and deliver this project; if there is no another lockdown, we should be able to complete it,” he said.
