Contactors of abandoned Niger Delta project will be investigated - Acting president Osinbajo

Nigerian acting president Yemi Osinbajo has directed all contractors of abandoned Niger Delta projects to return to sites. He also made it known that contractors who were awarded contracts and have received payments for the contracts but failed to complete the projects will be investigated thoroughly.
He made this known at stakeholders meeting for sustainable development in the Niger Delta held in Owerri, Imo state.

“I have today directed that all contractors whose projects have been abandoned must return to site forthwith.
“They must return and I want to say that all these contracts will be investigated thoroughly.
“We will investigate every one of the contracts and any one of them found to have diverted funds we will ensure that they are prosecuted and that they are brought to justice.
“It is not acceptable for anyone to take projects that are meant to offer succour to the people.
“Especially to the people in oil production communities and to abandon them and them come back and complain that work isn’t being done,” Osinbajo said.

He also assured that all abandoned project will be completed by the contractors.
