While reacting after the presentation in his office, Olaore lamented on how the country favors the foreign contractors over indigenous contractor and unknowing to them that these foreign contractors will still make use of them (local contractors) to execute these projects.
“Many of these foreign contractors who are awarded construction contracts, make use of the technical know-how of the indigenous engineers to execute these projects. Most organizations do not know this but I worked under a foreign company for 5years named CAPPA & D'ALBERTO in Lagos, before I resigned and this company employ local engineers like us to execute their projects”.
“After resigning, I opened my company and as of then, it was an enterprise company in 2005 before becoming a Limited Liability Company in 2009, and since then we have worked for many organizations, schools, Federal government and some State government, and we also have many youthful Nigerians working with us”, he noted.
