The Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has commenced a Constituency and Executive Project Tracking (CEPT) in Ebonyi state.
Prof. Bolaji Owasanoye, the Chairman of the Commission, disclosed this to newsmen on Thursday in Abakaliki during their visit for commencement of the exercise.
Owasanoye was represented at the event by Mr Tanko Abdullahi, Head, Constituency and Executive Project Tracking Group (CEPTG), Enugu.
Owasanoye said that the essence of the exercise was to examine, check and ensure these projects had been executed to the agreed specification.
According to him, the commission is collaborating with the Nigeria Institution of Quantity Surveyors (NIQS) to take measurements and determine whether the projects were actually done to specification.
Owasanoye noted that the commission was partnering other stakeholders including ; Non-Governmental Organisations, Civil Society groups and the media, to witness the inspection, take records and measurements as well.
He said the constituency projects consisted of infrastructure projects in health and education sectors, identified by government agencies and also recommended by legislators at the federal and state levels.
He added that the commission was conducting a second phase of the project tracking at Ebonyi South Senatorial zone because of its specific projects that attracted constituency and executive ventures.
He listed the projects to be tracked to include the construction of rural access roads; diagnostic centre at AE-FUNAI community among others, adding that other zones’ ventures would be tracked subsequently.
“We are deploying latest technology for this particular exercise, because we expect to get the best results from tracking activities.
“It is being carried out across the country and the commission in Enugu covers Ebonyi and Anambra,” Owasanoye said.
