The Independent Corrupt Practices And Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has said it is set to commence tracking of its first phase of constituency projects in 12 states. This was contained in a brief signed by the commission’s Public Relations Officer, Mrs Rasheedat Okoduwa in Abuja yesterday.
The initiative launched on April 2, 2019 by ICPC, aimed at ensuring satisfactory execution of all constituency projects as well as obtaining value for money. Members of the Steering Committee for the initiative included Nigerian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (NIQS), Budget Office of the Federation, and Office of the Accountant General of the Federation.
According to Okoduwa, the first phase of the exercise will commence in 12 states across the six geo-political zones of the country. At least five projects have been identified for tracking in each state.
The zones and states include North Central; Kogi and Benue, Northeast, Adamawa and Bauchi while others are Northwest, Sokoto and Kano. Southeast has Imo and Enugu, Southwest, Lagos and Osun; South-South, Akwa Ibom and Edo.
