Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, has revoked three contracts awarded to Tiamin Multi Services Ltd, a company belonging to one Aminu Mohammed.

Mohammed is the purported contractor allegedly behind the videos showing Governor Ganduje receiving monies suspected to be bribes. The three projects awarded to Mohammed’s company were worth over N1.6 billion.

The state commissioner of information, Mohammed Garba, announced the cancellation at a widely reported press briefing yesterday, on the resolutions of the State Executive Council.

He sighted “non-performance” as the reason behind revocation, which affected Tiamin and one other company, FNL Engineering Limited.
It is unclear if the second company is also linked to the contractor Mohammed.

According to Garba, “the roads are phase two dualisation of Kofar Dawanau-Dandinsh-Kwanar Madugu road awarded to TIAMIN Multi Services Global at the sum of N1, 255, 606, 028.49 billion; dualisation of 5km roads in Ungogo and Warawa local governments awarded at the sum of N1, 487, 482, 688.30 and N1, 204, 783, 620.67 respectively awarded to FNL Engineering limited.

“Other road contracts revoked are roads linking Kofar Sidi Ahmad to Kofar Dan ‘iya Aminu and Kofar Wambai; Kwarin Akuya, Dan Rimi, Sabon Birni Kurnar Asabe in Bichi and Fagge local government areas respectively awarded to Messrs Tiamin Multi Services Ltd. at total sum of N357, 693, 159.10 million.

The commissioner said the road projects in Bichi and Fagge were awarded on August 2, 2017 and November 13, 2017 respectively with completion period of four months and 14 months respectively.

He stressed that the contracts were revoked upon the expiration of the two contractors’ inability to complete the projects despite collecting respective advance payments of N204, 327, 916.69 and N96, 276, 398.50.
