Speaking to RCC contractor and MTN consultant during his inspection of the Enugu-Onitsha expressway rehabilitation project. Umahi after his inspection summoned the contractor RCC and MTN's rep and project consultant and read them the riot act.

Telling the contractor they have 48hrs to make all unmotorable sections of the expressway motorable or be sacked from site.

He then turned to MTN consultant and informed him he is sacked.

Umahi continued, I want you (RCC) with your technical team, consultant, MTN , comptroller and engineers a to meet with me and the governor at 6pm today!

Unfortunately for Nigeria's federal roads contractors there is a new Sheriff in town and it is no longer business as usual!

Of course a Federal minister is delegated the power the president wishes to delegate to him. He can choose to sack MTN themselves. Clearly he knows the powers the president has delegated to him.

You don't know Umahi
He is an experienced engineer who has carried out contracts on Nigerian roads with his own firm. He understand the system.
A minister of works has power to direct how a project is run and if he chooses to direct for a consultant to be sacked he can do so under the powers delegated by the president of the Federal Republic .

Either way, they now can no longer try it in Nigeria under Umahi's watch as Minister of Works and Housing. RCC Reps do not appear to be a Chinese company, they look Arabic.

Meaning? If the president has delegated to the minister full powers to take any decision on the projects , Umahi would literally be no different from if the president is standing in front of the contractors himself.

Umahi is a man known for achieving what most people believe is impossible.

You think he achieved the results and infrastructural transformation in Ebonyi state by being timid about sacking contractors and consultants? undecided

The same ministry Fashola headed and things went south .

I guess they are going to have to do something extraordinary to avoid the sack.

Fashola performed ok , he met hundreds of abandoned projects and he was a lawyer and not an Engineer, may be a lawyer was needed to navigate the legal minefield of getting contractors of abandoned projects to return to site.
However I think it was too much for him in the first 4 years having the power ministry as well.

He has successfully completed some mega projects.

Umahi sacked the consultant from the project which he absolutely has the right to do whether MTN choose to continue to retain his services that is up to them, but he cannot openly work on this project
that is what the poster is not understanding.
