NASS Wastes N1tn On Constituency Projects In 10 Years-Buhari

Constituency Projects

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the over N1 trillion spent on the constituency projects of National Assembly members in the last 10 years has produced no results.

He said data collected from Nigerians in rural communities showed that they had not felt the impact of such projects.

Buhari spoke at the National Summit on Diminishing Corruption in Public Sector, which opened at the State House Conference Centre on Monday in Abuja.

The event was organized by the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha, in collaboration with the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission.

“N1tn has been appropriated in the last 10 years for constituency projects, but the impact can hardly be seen,”  he stated.

The President directed the ICPC to go after the contractors, who collected funds for such projects and their collaborators in government.
