Plateau House of Assembly to Investigate Abandoned Projects by Previous Govt
Plateau state House of Assembly has promised to investigate all abandoned projects by the past government, especially the sub-standard ones.
The Plateau State Deputy Speaker, Hon Yusuf Gagdi, has also cautioned reckless contractors against the use of sub-standard building equipments and ordered for full flesh investigation into state’s Universal Basic Education Programme during the immediate past PDP government.
He was speaking at the Plateau State House of Assembly complex during their first plenary session on 2016 plan of action on Wednesday in Jos.
According to him, the investigation became imperative because of the important place on education in Kanam local government council, which lacks federal government’s presence in the area of need.
He warned that the House will not hesitate to order for any necessary measures to be taken against defaulters who fail to deliver the contract awarded to them.
The deputy Speaker also called the state government’s attention to deplorable roads linking most of the schools – a development, which has led to the poor supervision and subsequent abandonment – schools without teachers.
He observed that the infrastructural decay has led to a deplorable state of the Federal Government Girls College, Dengi. Consequent to this, he said the former SuBEB chairman, Yopmang, should appear before the House Committee to explain her involvement in the deal.
According to him, contract awarded should be reviewed so that those defaulters should be punished for failure to meet deadlines, adding that the House will embark on oversight function to visit the site and bring back report.
The deputy Speaker said that, Gagdi is the constituency that has no road at present; so he appealed to Lalong’s administration to give attention to rural roads construction in Jarmai through Guruntung to Lamba.
