He, therefore, urged the contractors to see the projects as service to humanity, stressing they are expected to abide by all the contractual guidelines in order to deliver value for money.

Also commenting, the Managing Director, Kano State Rural Development Authority, KNARDA, the executing agency of KSADP, Dr. Junaidu Yakubu Muhammad, warned the contractors that a strong monitoring mechanism has been put in place to supervise their work, adding that any one of them found wanting would be sanctioned according to the stipulated regulations.
