President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday said the over N1 trillion spent on constituency projects by National Assembly members in the last 10 years has produced no results.
Buhari stated this at the National Summit on Diminishing Corruption in Public Sector, which opened at the State House Conference Centre in Abuja.
He said data collected from Nigerians in rural communities showed that they had not felt the impact of such projects.
“N1 trillion has been appropriated in the last 10 years for constituency projects, but the impact can hardly be seen,” he said.
The President directed the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) to go after contractors who collected funds for such projects and their collaborators in government.
