But the FHA in a statement issued by its Head of Public Affairs, Mr Kenneth Chigelu in Abuja, assured that all contractors who had completed their jobs would receive their payments, latest by Friday, March 19th, 2021.
He said: “The management of FHA just rose from a meeting with our contractors with a resolution that all contractors who have completed their jobs would receive their payments, latest by Friday, March 19th,2021.
“The management of FHA did not deliberately withhold the payment of our contractors, with whom the authority has a long-standing good business relationship.
“The little delay in payment was as a result of the management’s stance on due diligence before payments are made. It is good to note that this issue has been amicably resolved.”
