Members of Nigeria’s House of Representatives on Thursday, resolved to probe the
activities of federal government's ministries, departments and agencies, MDAs
following unsatisfactory state of major capital projects executed since 1999.
To this extent, the House has directed all its standing committees to provide
details of all ongoing projects being executed by all the ministries, departments
and agencies (MDAs) within 60 days.
The House after assessment of the decadence of infrastructure across the
country, also beckoned on the Secretary to the Government of the Federation,
SGF, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim to avail the Lower Chamber, a copy of Architect
Bunu's report on abandoned projects of the Federal Government for perusal.
The resolution was sequel to the motion sponsored by Deputy Majority Leader of
the House of Representatives, Leo Ogor, who faulted the implementation of
projects by the MDAs.
He said "The House is aware further that the National Assembly has appropriated
trillions of naira to the Federal Government ministries, departments and agencies
for capital projects for infrastructural development of the nation since 1999 till date.
"But we are worried that despite these huge allocations to the MDAs of the
Federal Government, there is still dearth of infrastructural development across the
length and breadth of Nigeria, suggesting of the fact that these funds have not
been used commensurately.
"Concerned that unless this Honourable House takes urgent step to stop this
trend, the MDAs may continue to serve as Conduit pipes through which the
nation's purse will be drained."
