Following Gobroadsheet’s investigations, facts have emerged over the philosophy behind the suspension of ongoing drainages project across Kaduna State under the leadership of Governor Nasir El-Rufai. It seems not intended.
One of such facts is that, contractors handling the project have gone berserk to include more spots that were not initial captured in the terms and agreement of the project which many have seen as avenue to swindle tax payers of their hard earned money.
Upon discovery, the state governor had to take decisive action in order not to put additional liability on the state that is possibly not captured in the multi year budget plan currently being implemented.
But, the drainages are necessary and very important to people of Kaduna because it will help check erosion which has become a yearly occurence apart from addressing slippery of roads each time it rains.
The governor himself captured it better when he said, some contractors were using the project to commit the government into extra expenditure.
