Abuja - Nigeria has the highest incidents of contractors abandoning government projects before they are implemented in the world, a senior National Assembly member said.
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, blamed the prevalence of such on the non-implementation of the Public Procurement Act.
He said this at the opening session of an interactive meeting on public procurement organized by the House Committee on Public Procurement in Lagos.
“Nigeria has the highest number of abandoned projects. Since 2007we have not witnessed the full implementation of the Public Procurement Act,” said Tambuwal.
Okoya Thomas, Chairperson of the Committee regretted that most agencies were breaching procurement regulations.
Thomas urged stakeholders to cooperate with Parliament and the Procurement Bureau to address challenges associated with procurement.
