National Contractors’ Association Promises To End Abandoned Projects In Nigeria

Abandoned projectNational Contractors Association of Nigeria has promised to put an end to government abandoned projects across the country.
The National Chairman of the Association of Nigeria, Onuche Okoh, who led his team on a courtesy visit to the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammad Musa Bello on Tuesday, frowned at several numbers of uncompleted buildings scattered across the country and promised to help eradicate abandoned projects.
According to him, the Association will go back to the basics by monitoring the activities of the contractors by entrenching transparency and integrity.
This was even as the minister asked the Contractors to register their association with the Bureau for Public Procurement (BPP) as Non-Governmental Organization to enable it monitor activities of contractors in the country.
The Minister said that the Procurement Act has given Non-Governmental Organizations and Civil Society Organizations a window to register with the BPP to participate as watchdogs in the
entire contract processes in the country.
Muhammad Bello encouraged the Association to study the Act and take advantage of the window provided to strengthen the performance of contractors in the country.
He welcomed the Association’s interest to partner with the FCT Administration but said that the relationship can only be consummated when the BPP writes the FCT Administration in that regard. [myad]
