Julius Berger Summoned Over Sambo’s N16bn Residence by estacyresource: 1:03pm On Dec 21, 2012
Senate has invited Julius Berger Plc. over the additional N9 billion sought for the completion of the construction of Vice President Namadi Sambo’s official residence. Chairman of the Federal Character Committee (FCT), Senator Smart Adeyemi, disclosed the to newsmen in Abuja yesterday.

According to him, the committee will invite Julius Berger to explain the matter at a public hearing scheduled to hold in January. Adeyemi noted that though his committee could neither arrest nor prosecute anyone found culpable of inadequacies and corruption, it is the responsibility of the executive and Nigerians to decide whether the project should be stopped or more funds be appropriated by the National Assembly.

He said: “Our own job as legislators, especially when we go out for oversight functions, is to expose all inadequacies. It is for the media, the civil society and the executive to take it from where we have stopped.” “We do not have the power to compel anybody to be arrested or prosecuted.

If we expose something, it stops there. We’ve invited Julius Berger construction company, handling the project to come and justify it and we are still on this.” “We are bringing them to a Round Table. If we had not wanted it to be exposed, we would not have gone there at all or we wouldn’t have gone there with journalists. We want Nigerians to see the sincerity of what we are doing. We have made it open to Nigerians and it is for Nigerians or the executive to decide whether the project should be stopped.

But we’re inviting the construction company to meet us in January to come and justify the additional N9 billion being sought for the project,” he said.

Summon! Summon!! Summon!!!. . . Caveat: Anticipating prosecution at your own risk. Summon is a norm in the polity called Nigeria. Summon is a mean to give a pat on the shoulder and nod for national award

This is outrageous building a house for this ammount for just one goverment officer!!

But remember the house is the official residence of the VP so he can't stay in it for longer than 2 terms. Unless of course they did the magic of selling it to him at 10% of the actual cost , as they did for the senate president and speaker of the reps.PDP can do anything. When they sell government property to themselves and take government money to pay for it!

Chai we are in trouble in this country! 16B to build a house for one person and the senator summoning JB is already making excuses for them(JB).

So in their warped mind when they expose this fraudulent project that everyone already knows about they have done their part, it is left for the agencies that were appointed by this same people to arrest and prosecute who now, Sambo or JB.

How IG/sss/EFCC/ICPC wan investigate the people wey appoint them in the first place with the very potent immunity these guys enjoy is best imagined.

I laff in 16B!!!

1B is too much to build a house sef, but I tell you the house would probably cost about 1B and the rest pocketed by Sambo. He probably use another 3-4B to settle some ther people and the rest is his.

Think about it, its impossible using all that money to build a house.

Before 1991 the President's Abuja residence was Aguda House. After 1991 Aguda House became the Vice President's residence.

The government decided to build another residence for the vice president and convert Aguda House to a presidential guest house.

Yar'Adua's government then gave the vice president's residence to the chief justice. They Vice President stayed at Aguda House.

Now the government wants to build a new residence for the vice president and convert Aguda House into a guest house again.

When I say being born a Nigerian is like a curse or plague, some say I'm a pessimist.

Please tell me a country in the world where N16 billion of government money is used to build a house for just one man whereas many people struggle to survive, struggle to have three square meals, have no good road or electricity, have no jobs.

Julius Berger obviously want to get their own share of the national cake
