Crime & SecurityNewsNigeriaICPC Chairman, Aliyu Adamu Vows To Monitor Constituency Projects

The Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission ICPC, Dr Aliyu Adamu has promised to ensure that constituency projects are delivered across the country.

He stated this when a delegation from BudgIT Nigeria, led by its Country Representative, Mr. Gabriel Okeowo visited him.

Represented by the Secretary to the Commission, Mr. Clifford Oparaodu said that the issue of the constituency project was germane as some of the people tasked with the executions often broke the terms of the agreement.

“Every year, the government spends a lot of money in budgetary allocation for projects, and these projects both in the federal, state and even local government and various communities. But oftentimes, we find that some people do not carry out the mandate in the execution of those projects which I obviously think is why we are here, you know, corrupt practices. So, for us at ICPC, we will continue to do what is right and make sure those tasked with our constituency projects do the same.” he said.

Earlier, the Country Representative of BudgiT Nigeria, Mr. Gabriel Okeowo said that the essence of the visit was to renew the existing partnership with the commission.

“For us, it is also not just tracking projects, it is indeed to promote participatory governance, which is the art of democracy and one way to promote participatory governance is to make information accessible to citizens. Okeowo said.

He maintained that BudgiT is a civil society organization that does not only track projects but also pushes for the promotion of participatory governance.
