The Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission has reportedly uncovered National Assembly members’ uncompleted constituency projects worth over N45 billion.
According to documents exclusively obtained by a national newspaper in Nigeria, the discovery is part of the Constituency and Executive Projects Tracking Initiative of the ICPC, which is in its fifth stage, following the completion of the fourth stage in 2022.
It was gathered that the tracking had helped the anti-graft agency to track about four thousand projects valued at about two hundred billion naira in the Federal Capital Territory, Lagos, Kano, Ekiti, Enugu, Ebonyi, Plateau, and others.
The projects reportedly include two hundred and five healthcare projects, seventy-six water supply projects, sixty-seven environment and natural resources projects
