Delta State Commissioner for Works reads riot act to directors

Funkekeme Solomon, the Delta State Commissioner for Works, on Tuesday, frowned at the unauthorised award of contracts by some directors in the ministry, and said that a committee will soon be set to investigate the matter.

A statement signed by the Public Relations Officer of the Ministry, Tina Oki, said Solomon disclosed this during the 2013 pre-budget meeting with heads of departments in the Ministry.

“He warned that he would no longer entertain lapses from staff members of the Ministry, and that adequate measures had been put in place to checkmate lapses, as anyone found wanting would be dealt with in accordance with rules,” the statement read.

It said the commissioner also expressed displeasure with the attitude of most directors in the ministry, in the area of project initiation, administration and budgeting.

“He, therefore, called for full integration and adequate sharing of information within and among the departments, pointing out that this would promote a healthy environment for all members of staff,” Oki said.

“While stressing that he was not out to witch hunt any member of staff in the discharge of their duties, Solomon said he would not give room to anyone to jeopardise government infrastructural development agenda through their `laissez-faire attitude?.”

The commissioner enjoined the directors to be committed to their duties and shun all negative practice that would plunge the ministry and the state into disrepute.
