Only 23% Of Approved 2017 FG Capital Projects Completed In Enugu by OrientDailyNews: 12:42pm On Jul 08, 2018
Findings by an NGO, Women Aid Collective (WACOL), through an initiative known as, Voice to the People (V2P), has shown that just about 23 per cent of all capital projects mapped out for Enugu state in 2017 budget have been com­pleted out of which a paltry 7per cent has been put to use.

The finding which was pre­sented to journalists during a stakeholders’ meeting organ­ised by the group, focused on capital projects as contained in the Federal Government of Nigeria 2017 Approved Budget implemented in Enugu State and covers agriculture, health, water, education, infrastruc­ture and rural electrification in the three senatorial zones of the state.

A breakdown of the finding showed that about 7.69 per cent has been completed and in use, 15.38 per cent was completed but not in use while 46.15 per cent is ongoing with varying degrees of completion.

The assessment which was done using V2P volunteers from communities hosting the projects also showed that work has not started in about 30.77 per cent of the projects.

Reacting to the finding, the Executive Director, Women In­formation Network (WINET), Mrs. Miriam Menkiti, said it was an eye opener as it has ex­posed the less than impressive implementation of the 2017 budget in Enugu State.

She said, “concerted efforts should be made towards sen­sitising the people for them to know more about government projects in their areas so they can hold those responsible for implementation accountable if it fails”.

Also speaking, the Zon­al Secretary of the Nigerian Union of journalists, (NUJ), South East, Comrade Kenneth Ofoma, faulted the Nigerian budgeting system, stating that there was no way the nation could develop with the current system.

“The current incremental budgeting system being prac­ticed is a scam. It is fraudulent. It will not lead us anywhere if not changed.

“The current administra­tion came on board with the promise of reverting to what is known as zero budgeting but ever since, they’ve stuck with the old ways which encourages fraud,” he said.

Participants at the event ad­vocated an increased sensiti­sation of the people on budget­ing issues through traditional rulers, town unions, churches, market places and through the social media as it will help them in monitoring projects sited in their areas.
