The Executive Chairman of the Ekiti State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Professor Femi Akinwumi has commended contractors handling the four Model Schools initiated by Governor Kayode Fayemi for the quality and pace of work done on the project sites in the last one week

Speaking in Ado-Ekiti while monitoring the projects over the weekend, Akinwumi said with the pace of work done in the last one week by the contractors in spite of the unfavorable weather conditions, the contractors were certain to complete and deliver the projects as scheduled.

Akinwumi expressed joy at the facilities being put in place in the model schools saying the Fayemi Administration was taking Basic Education a notch higher  in Nigeria  with the model schools under construction.

“I am very impressed with what I have seen today. The interior and exterior works on the projects are going on as scheduled  in spite of the inclement weather. The landscaping of the whole environment as well as the finishing, the fittings  and painting works are also  going on smoothly.These are enduring  projects that every Ekiti Man would be proud off when completed in the next few weeks,” the SUBEB boss said.

He promised that Government would continue to support the contractors to enable them deliver the project as scheduled.

The Chairman who later monitored some ongoing UBEC/SUBEB Projects however expressed displeasure that some 2014/2015 UBEC/ SUBEB Projects in the state had not been completed.

He consequently directed the Education Secretaries in the 16 Local Government Education Authorities to forward the list of such non performing contractors to his office latest by Tuesday, 29th September.
