“Last year, we got a revised estimated total cost for the project and extension of time for the contractors.
“To align everything together, the consultancy services for the supervision also has to be extended to correspond with the completion period.
“To that effect, we got approval from council for augmentation of over N91 million for the consultancy services supervision; this now raises the consultancy fee from N125.7 million to a total of N217.4 million.’’ He said.
Adamu said that the second memo was in respect of Mangu Dam Project.
He said that the Mangu Dam had attained about 70 per cent completion but was still an ongoing project.
“We also had a Revised Estimated Total Cost (RETC), approved by Council last year, which also approved an extension period for the completion of the works.
“In the same vein, the consultancy period for the consultant has to be adjusted to correspond to the completion period.
“This augmentation was N111.6million to raise the consultancy services from N104million to over N215 million with an extension period of 24 months,’’ he said.
Kano governorship tribunal: Ganduje comes up with over 200 witnesses and 2000 page files for defence against Abba Kabir
The Governor of Kano State, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, eventually issued his defense of five 1800-page volumes as well as moved to identify 203 witnesses who could announce to the public that on 23 March 2019 there was a democratic election.
This was revealed on Saturday by the lawyer of the Governor, Barrister Musa Abdullahi Lawan.
Lawan spoke in front of the State Elections Tribunal sitting on Milla road, Kano after lodging the Governor’s defense.
Barrister Lawan, who is among the Governor’s leading counsel, said the proposal from the PDP is in the first place pointless, but because it was lodged, they would then have to deal with failure.
“We brought in our processes in defense of the petition and we have done it with the time and we are very confidence of winning and right from the beginning we are saying PDP petition was unnecessary.” – Says Barrister Lawan
The attorney said that they are bringing in 203 potential witnesses and they’re going to be telling the tribunal that an election actually happened and that the request for the PDP was unfounded.
The prosecution for the Governor observed that the court case in the gubernatorial vote would start completely with the petition filing inside of 20-25 days.
He added that within the specified 21-day time, they lodged their petition stating that PDP drained their time before they submitted their petition.
“We are highly confidence of winning this case because the whole world admits that their was an elections and that Governor Ganduje actually wins the election,”
