The Federal Controller of Works in Kwara State, Alhaji Wasiu Atitebi, says the Federal Government is not indebted to any contractor handling all ongoing road projects in the state.
Atitebi made the clarification while speaking journalists on the sidelines of a tour of some Federal Government road projects across the state.
The controller was in company with the Director of Federal Highways for the North Central Zone, Mr Dayyabul Mamnan.
Atitebi said the Federal Government was not owing any contractor for jobs executed, adding that all certificates for payment of jobs executed were settled by the Federal Government.
One of the contractors handling the projects, Mr Nie Yong, while corroborating the claim of the Controller, said the Federal Government was not owing his company.
Atitebi, who inspected the completed llorin-Jebba road, expressed satisfaction with the execution of the project.
Some of the motorists plying the llorin-Jebba road expressed gratitude to the Federal Government over the completion of the road, saying it would boost socio-economic development of the area.
They called for creation of alternative roads for trucks to reduce accidents on the newly constructed road.
Other ongoing road projects inspected were the Ilorin-Egbe boundary road, Offa bye-pass and the Aboto-Afon boundary road.
