The House of Representatives has begun an inquest into failed projects in the country as it has vowed to track all abandoned projects to ensure their completion.
Makki Abubakar, Chairman of the House ad-hoc Committee on abandoned projects said in Abuja on Thursday, March 4, that, “The Reps committee was set-up to investigate executed, funded and repeated capital projects in the Appropriation Act,” .
He said that there were many abandoned projects in the annual budgets dotted across the country.
Abubakar said that the Reps Committee would engage the services of consultants to help in tracking and aggregating all abandoned projects in the country.
Francis Ottah Agbo (PDP-Benue) a member of the Committee observed that there were many duplicated projects in the country.
According to him, the sad aspect of the whole issue is that the reports from Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) are different from what is on ground.
He said that the Committee will ensure that such projects were identified and completed through parliamentary interventions.
