Ministry of Technical & Higher Education Dissatisfied with TVET Contractors in Massingbi & Kono

Dr Turad Senesie Dr Turad Senesie

Kono, Sierra Leone - August 15 2019 - The Deputy Minister of Technical and Higher Education is visiting Massingbi and Kono to assess the readiness of the Technical and Vocational Institutes for operationalisation come September 2019.

He is accompanied by the Director of TVET Dr. Victor Massaquoi, engineers from the Ministry of Works and a representative from the ACC.

It could be recalled that the Islamic Development Bank provided funds for the construction of the TVET institutes in 2014 and the expected date for completion of the project was 2016.

The contractors and consultants failed to deliver and extension for completion has now been exhausted, according to the Deputy Minister.

Efforts by the new administration to have the contractors and consultants to complete the job have proved futile.

There seem to be a deliberate attempt by these contractors to test the resolve of this government in correcting the past, the Deputy Minister Dr. Turad Senesie said, after site inspection.

The minister has requested the Ministry of Works Engineers to submit a report of the assessment for action to be taken by government.

From observation, construction work to date is incomplete and quality of materials used is very substandard, according to the Dr. Turad Senesie.

The Deputy Minister of Technical and Higher Education concluded that it is time for Sierra Leoneans to realise that the people of Sierra Leone should not be taken for granted.

He requested the ACC to speed up action since they have exhausted all means possible to get the contractors and consultants to complete the job.

Dr. Turad is calling on the ACC, to investigate the cause of delay and take appropriate actions.
