– says Linden REO, Henry Rodney
Linden’s Regional Executive Officer (REO), Henry Rodney informed that the Mackenzie Sports Club (MSC) Basketball Court rehabilitation works will be completed within the timeframe that is set out by the contractor as part of the contract.
Speaking briefly with Kaieteur Sport via telephone yesterday, Rodney said that the rehabilitation works is in its “preparatory” phase where the unit was cleared for the works to commence and he has all assurance from the contractor that the work is on time.
“I have spoken to the contractor after the contract was awarded and what I can tell you is that the works will be done within the stipulated period. All necessary work will be completed within the necessary periods in the contracts,” Rodney told this newspaper.
Previously, the non-progress of the rehabilitation work was attributed to the contractor’s broken-down paver after Presidential Advisor on Youth Empowerment, Odinga Lumumba called a press conference last week to address concerns raised over the project.
Kaieteur Sport had carried an article entitled “Works yet to commence at MSC Basketball Court” even though the contract had been awarded. The concerns raised in the article over timeline and the basketball programme in Linden had prompted Lumumba.
Rodney refused to comment yesterday on the status of the malfunctioning paver, opting to state, however, that what he knows is that the contractor is in the process of acquiring all the necessary material to get the works off the ground in a timely manner.
Secretary of the MSC, Rawle Blair had told this newspaper earlier yesterday that after speaking with the Linden REO, he was made to understand that the contractor is attempting to get bitumen that is proving a difficulty to get the works up and running. (Edison Jefford)
