Nigerian governor representing Kogi State, Yahaya Bello has called out a Chinese Contractor for shoddy work after exorbitant charges. The Company was tasked to work on a hospital facility in the state; however, the Minister on project supervision found out that, the work done was sub-standard.
In a viral video, the governor is seen asking the Chinese contractor to repeat after him that, the “work done is Zero,” as he gives the company up to December this year to start and finish everything altogether.
“This job is supposed to have been delivered before now. In the first instance, you have delayed; you have breached that particular part of the contract, So, I am holding you squarely responsible for this and we are going to take appropriate actions. And, I give you between now and December this year to go back and do this job properly.” He said.
“Is this the quality of hospital in China, if you are sick will you be treated here, will you want to be admitted in this hospital, are we owing you?… “We do not owe you any dime and you think this is the kind of job you can do for us.” He furiously added.
The governor also stated that, the inferior work done shows that, the Chinese company “have no capacity.” “This is not GYB’s standard, I am a man of quality and everything I do as far as Kogi State is concerned in terms of project depicts quality and standard, World Standard!” he said.
Yahaya Bello equally threatened to deal with whoever introduced the Chinses contractor to the state. “Whoever introduced you to the state to be given contract, I will hold the person equally responsible. Because not even a supplier I recommend to do any job in this state.” He finally said.
