ENDEAVOUR TO DO THOROUGH JOBS AS COLLEGE WILL ONLY ACCEPT QUALITY… PROVOST

The College Deputy Provost Dr R.A Soyele on Tuesday, 11th August, 2020 at the Kunle Filani Lecture Theatre admonished Contractors to be up and doing at their assignments and that they should endeavour to do a thorough job to justify their competence.

He said this while representing the Provost, Dr A.A Ajayi at the meeting of the Contractors, Consultants and End –User Committee for the four (4) College Project recently approved by TETfund.

Speaking further, the Deputy Provost appreciated the Contractors for taking interest in the College and congratulated them for writing bids making them eligible to partner with the College on the various projects. He however cautioned that “to whom much is given, much is expected” as the College is a Centre of Academic Excellence and anyone that must do any Project with the College must follow lay down Standards.

He encouraged the Chairmen and Members of the End User Committee to be open minded in the discharge of their duties and see their selections on the Committee as a call to duty. He noted that as Chairmen and Members of the various committees on each Project, they were to help the Management to see to it that the projects are properly done. This they can do by constructively criticising and supervising the Contractors on observation noted on various sites. He added that their work was not to witch-hunt but to help the Management achieve the quality needed in the building as they will be the ones to use the buildings afterwards.

Speaking on the Projects, the Director of Works and Physical Planning, Engr. V.A Adeneye informed that the Contractors were to start their work immediately and do their work as much as possible according to specification within the time allotted.

Also speaking at the meeting was the Bursar who informed the Contractors that with proper filling of their claims and documents, they were sure to have all they needed promptly.

Questions bothering on the Projects were asked and answers promptly given on grey areas at the meeting.
