Only 40.3 per cent of constituency projects were completed in 2016 in 20 states, a civic technology organization, BudgIT Nigeria has disclosed. The organization, which is interested in ensuring transparency and accountability in government budgets, said it tracked 852 projects across 20 states between June 2016 and June 2017.
The states are; Kogi, Ogun, Oyo, Kano, Edo, Delta, Sokoto, Kaduna, Niger, Gombe, Lagos, Ondo, Imo, Cross River, Ekiti, Osun, Kwara, Akwa Ibom, Kebbi, and Enugu.
BudgIT, in its latest Tracka Report, said out of the 852 projects tracked, 343 projects remained unexecuted, 118 are ongoing while only 350 reached completion.
The Federal Government last year released N100 billion to the National Assembly for constituency projects after it failed to consider President Muhammadu Buhari’s N180 billion virement request.
