The Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has expressed displeasure at the quality and level of work done at the State Judiciary Complex, along Kobape-Siun Road, saying he was surprised that a project that was supposedly 100 percent paid for, was yet to be completed.
Prince Abiodun who made this known while inspecting the Complex, said he visited the complex to ensure that it was fully ready when the Judiciary resumes and set to host the National Judicial Conference at the venue in September.
On his assessment of the project, the Governor said the design had some defects, while the quality of finishing was not impressive, summoning the contractors handling the project to come and explain the delay in delivering and the flaws noticed.
“In my opinion, I think that the design itself has some flaws, not so sure about the quality of finishing I am seeing, but again, I feel that once we sit down with both the civil and the contractors handling the fixtures, we should be able to work something out, there might be some design changes around here.
“As you can see, there are some pipes exposed, they look like designs from the sixties, you can also see rain water gathering on the floor. The Receptionist cannot seat down there when it is raining even in the sun, so we need to do some design changes. It will take a lot of efforts for the place to be ready for use”, he said.
In her remark, the Chief Judge, Hon. Justice Mosunmola Dipeolu, who accompanied the Governor, lauded him for prioritising the welfare of the Judiciary, saying his visit to the Complex was timely, as it would speed up completion of the complex, in readiness for the conference in September.
