Constituency projects: ICPC orders three contractors to return to site in Kano
The Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has ordered three contractors handling the construction of blocks of classrooms in some primary schools in Kano State to return to the site immediately over shoddy jobs.
The said projects sited in some communities across the state fall under the constituency projects.
This was just as ICPC sounded a note of warning that should the contractors fail to return to the site, they will be compelled to refund the money paid to them and the sponsors will also be held responsible.
The Chief Assistant Superintendent, ICPC Kano Office, Bukar Galadima, gave the order during a constituency and executive projects tracking exercise in the state.
It will be recalled that the team, during the visit to Madobi, Kura, Garum Malam federal constituency, observed that three primary schools sited in Garum Malam said to have been completed were found with defects and not up to specification according to the contract terms.
During the visit, the ICPC monitoring team noticed that the construction of Garum Malam, Yadakwari and Dumaji primary schools sponsored by the federal lawmaker was poorly carried out with roofs in bad shape.
