Constituency projects: Rep alleges fraud against Fashola’s ministry

A member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Adamu Chika, has accused officials of the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing of fraud in the execution of his zonal intervention projects.
Chika, who said he, in the 2016 and 2017 national budget, attracted water supply projects of N30 million in each of the years, and domiciled same in the ministry, expressed disappointment with the manner in which the projects were shabbily executed.
He also alleged that each of the boreholes, which should not cost more than N600,000 was in 2016 executed at about N2.2 million each, saying even at that, all the bore holes collapsed, just weeks after they were said to have been completed.
He alleged that of the N60 million worth of projects in contention, the federal government separately cashbacked them to the tune of N42 million (N21 million in 2016, and N21 million in 2017) but that his people were left with nothing to show for it.
Speaking during a chat with journalists at the National Assembly yesterday, the Niger state-born lawmaker, who vowed not to return to the federal parliament, even in the face of mounting pressures, over feelings that the National Assembly has lost so much of public trust, accused the ministry officials of sitting on his letter of complaint, personally written to the Minister, Mr.
Babatunde Fashola.
