ICPC Partners OAGF, BPP To Prevent Corruption In MDAs


The on-going tracking of constituency projects in 12 states of the federation is not to witch-hunt anyone, Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), Professor Bolaji Owasanoye has said.

Prof Owasanoye stated that the tracking was important because Nigeria has spent about N2trillion on funding since the year 2000, without commensurate development at the grassroots.

His claim was quoted in a statement by Spokesperson for the Commission, Mrs Rasheedat Okoduwa.

The ICPC boss also said that the commission will not hesitate to prosecute any contractor that has failed to deliver on the projects, including accomplices.

“ICPC commenced the Constituency Projects Tracking Group (CPTG) initiative to ensure proper implementation of funded projects at the various constituencies across the nation.

“The initiative was already yielding positive results as some contractors had gone back to the site to complete unfinished projects.”
