The Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) says it has set up a team to commence investigation of abandoned government projects spread across the country.
Acting Chairman of the commission, Ibrahim Magu, said this in an interview with newsmen in Gombe state yesterday saying this would help the anti-graft agency to know the level of completion of the projects, as well as the funds being 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. “This is where you can help us, if there is any 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 of executing them.
