We are set to investigate abandoned projects – EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crime Commission has said, it has set up a
team to commence the investigation of abandoned government projects
across the country.

Acting EFCC Chairman, Alhaji Ibrahim Magu, stated this in an interview with newsmen in Gombe on Monday.

He said this would help the anti-graft agency to know the level of
completion of the projects, as well as the funds spent on them.

“The move is to ensure that the contractors complete the projects for
the benefit of the people and the development of the country,’’ he said.

Magu said the agency was ready to fight corruption, but with the support of all stakeholders in the country.

The EFCC boss, therefore, called on Nigerians to identify such projects
in their respective areas and report to the commission, for necessary

“If there is an abandoned project, we will go after them because most
people collect money and they don’t execute the contract,” he said.

According to him, some contracts were awarded without the intention to execute them.
