KAPIT: All contractors awarded projects under the Rural Transformation Programme (RTP) and Minor Rural Project (MRP) ought to do their jobs properly in accordance with the specifications of their contracts.

This reminder came from Bukit Goram assemblyman Jefferson Jamit when visiting a project to improve the drainage system in front of the multipurpose hall of Kapit Foochow Association along Jalan Selirik here on Sunday.

“There is no compromise, contractors must do and complete the projects according to specifications. It is very important that the projects are implemented properly so that the recipients are happy and truly benefit from the government funding,” he said.

He also urged the implementing agency to supervise the projects strictly and ensure that contractors adhere to the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), saying the projects were proof that the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS)-led state government was sincere in making life better for the people.’

Jamit was accompanied by Kapit District Council assistant secretary Kelimbit Sibat, Kapit Foochow Association chairman Sii Bang Ee, Kapit Foochow Association youth chief Ting King Yiing, councillor Liew Hua Hua and the contractor.

Jamit was in town since Friday, attending several activities.
