S/East Erosion Projects: FG to Prosecute Contractors Found Wanting.

The Federal Government on Wednesday threatened to prosecute any contractor found frustrating the speedy execution of on-going Erosion Projects in the South Eastern zone of the country.
The Senior Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on Media and Publicity, Dr Reuben Abati stated this in Abuja while briefing State House correspondents on the outcome of the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.

The meeting was presided over by President Goodluck Jonathan.
Abati said the President had already constituted a Committee, to be headed by the Director General, Bureau of Public Procurement, Mr Emeka Eze, to visit all the erosion project sites with a view to ascertain the seriousness of the contractors.
He said that the Committee would assess the state of execution and completion of the various projects, look at ways of better management of the projects and also advise the government on the prioritisation of the projects.
``One point that is made very clear by Mr President is that the unserious contractors involved in any of these projects will have their projects determined and maybe prosecuted if they are found culpable.’’
Other members of the Committee are Directors from the Federal Ministries of Works; Environment; Land, Housing and Urban Development; Water Resources, Ecological Office and the Office of Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF).
According to him, the Committee must submit its findings before the commencement of this year’s rainy season.
Abati further disclosed that President Jonathan would on Monday flag-off the Centenary Celebration.
He explained that next year Nigeria would be 100 years as a geo-political entity.
He said the event would afford the nation an opportunity to celebrate its achievements and ``the unity and uniqueness of the nation.’’ (NAN)
