The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission has commenced tracking over 70 executive and constituency projects worth N7.3 billion across Borno State.

“This project tracking exercise is on the behest of the Chairman of the Commission, Prof. Bolaji Owasanoye,” Abubakar Gujja, a Principal Superintendent with the Borno State office of the Commission, told Newsmen at the Maiduguri Dental and Eye Hospital exercise on Monday.

“The chairman is not alone in this initiative; he is carrying along the entire Board of the Commission to ensure transparency and fraud-free execution of all such projects appropriated in the budget,” the principal superintendent said.


He added that the commission would seek the assistance of the security agencies to escort to project sites in Boko Haram-prone areas.

“The aim is to ensure satisfactory completion and usage of the projects appropriated,” he explained, adding that the exercise would last for about two weeks.

“Wherever we observe any discrepancies or infractions in the execution of any project during our tracking we recommend in our report which we will compile after the exercise that the contractor returns to the site or we recommend for the recovery of money paid for the contract,” Gujja explained further.
