They are allegations that close to 120 contract jobs for the renovation of schools, supply of furniture, books and the building of new school structures, under the State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB, were hurriedly handed out to certain well placed and faceless persons in the very last days of the Liyel Imoke administration, in direct violation of due process in the conduct of government and governance.
“While that administration’s much touted ‘Due Process’ was employed in asking contractors to tender with about =N=200, 000 (Two Hundred Thousand Naira) in fees and processes, 90 percent of those who finally ‘got’ the jobs did not tender for them”, a source insists The same source also disclosed to www.calitown.com that “members of the Board; the Chairman, Secretary and three Commissioners got between two to three jobs while other jobs were shared among cronies and political associates”.
At the SUBEB state office in Calabar, not many sources and highly placed officials were willing to volunteer information but a source who secured one of the jobs countered the allegation in a text message to www.calitown.com insisting instead that “due process was followed to the latter and Certificates of No Objection was issued by the Due Process Department. Only qualified contractors with reputable track records and with the lowest bids were selected… some have already been mobilized and are on site”. The source further pointed to the fact that rather than creating a chaotic situation, it should be drawn to the attention of the Cross River State Government that she needs to pay up her counterpart funds so that she can access her backlog of SUBEB jobs from 2012 to 2014.
