Unya wala na gyud moy chance makasud pa mo og balik,” Governor Gwendolyn Garcia told the contractors in a meeting on April 7, 2021.

CEBU, Philippines —  Four contractors are in hot water after failing to meet the deadline for infrastructure projects of Cebu Province.

The province has given the contractors two weeks to show progress in the projects they are handling or risk getting terminated.

"Per project site, kinahanglan dunay own set of equipment. Tagaan ta lang mo og lugway for the last time. Di pa gani mo mo-perform, sultian ta lang gyud mo, i-terminate ta gyud mo. Unya wala na gyud moy chance makasud pa mo og balik,” Governor Gwendolyn Garcia told the contractors in a meeting on April 7, 2021.

During that meeting, Garcia learned that Square Cube Construction, Leda Construction Inc., Pablo S. Labasbas Construction Corp., and AT Builders and General Merchandise failed to meet their target deadlines because they lacked equipment.

The projects they are handling in Talisay City, San Fernando, Carcar City, Sibonga, Argao, Barili, Dalaguete, Sogod, Consolacion, and Tabogon are supposed to be completed by February this year.

Based on records of the Provincial Engineering's Office, Capitol is implementing P4.3 billion worth of concreting and improvement projects on provincial and barangay roads in different towns and component cities in Cebu Province.

"You know very well nga under existing rules, mo-negative slippage ka og 10 percent. That’s already ground for revocation or termination of contract. Now, most of you, ni-variance namo og negative 44, negative 96, diay wa gyud masugdi,” Garcia said told the contractors, as quoted by Sugbo News.

Another meeting will take place on April 21 during which the contractors are expected to present progress reports.

"I’m not going to allow you to slow down our progress here. Kung kamo na lay makadugay, i-terminate ta mo," Garcia said. — JMO (FREEMAN)
