There are strong indications that ministries occupying the Joseph Gomwalk State Secretariat in Jos will be moving to newly renovated edifice by next week. State Commissioner for Urban Development, Samuel Galadima gave the hint while on tour of some projects across the Jos metropolis.
The contract for the renovation of the JD Gomwalk Secretariat was awarded 5 years ago thereby compeling civil servants to vacate the building for the Contractor to renovate and furnish the structure. Inspecting the edifice, the Commissioner, Architect Sam Galadima and his Directors directed the Contractor to speed up the completion.
The team also moved to the Plateau State Geographical Information System office where the Commissioner expressed satisfaction with the Contractor having done a good job with only the mobilization fee given to him. The Commissioner was also at the office of the Deputy Governor at Rayfield to inspect a wing of the building that was not properly handled.
The Commissioner in a press briefing said the Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong is interested in the welfare of Civil Servants and will not hesitated to see them work in a conducive environment.
He warned the Contractors not to jeopardize the confidence imposed on them.
