The Federal Housing Authority (FHA) on Monday says it has commenced payment to contractors who have completed their jobs and verified in both Zuba and Guzape sites in Abuja.
The contractors who handled the Abuja Mass Housing Project had in their numbers taken to the streets to protest delay in payments of debt owed to them.
But FHA in a statement issued by its Head of Public Affairs, Mr Kenneth Chigelu, in Abuja said it has commenced payment in respect of the agreement reached with representatives of the contractors last Tuesday,
It reiterated the agency’s commitment to hold in high regard the existing strategic partnerships between contractors.
“It is important to note that the authority under the leadership of the Managing Director/Chief Executive, Senator Gbenga B. Ashafa remains committed to the dictates of public accountability which requires the verification of work done before projects are paid for.
“Management wishes to use this medium to assure stakeholders and partners that the Authority would continue to hold in high regard the existing strategic partnerships in order to deliver on its mandates to the Nigerian populace’,’ the statement read.
