Federal Gov’t Denies Spending N56m To Construct Fence In Katsina

The Federal Character Commission has debunked an online report alleging that it awarded a contract at the sum of N56,080,593.00 in 2016 for the construction of a fence and gatehouse at its proposed training school in Katsina state around 2016.

In a statement sent to Legit.ng by its media unit on Thursday, June 24, the commission said the report only captured the content of an earlier audit observation which it had cleared.

Part of the statement read: “In response to that Audit observation which was alleged in 2018 at the Public hearing of the House of Representatives, Public Account Committee, the Commission had explained that it fully complied with all the processes regarding the award of the contract.

“It was explained then, that, it was the practice of the commission to attach photocopies of the letter of award and contract agreement to payment vouchers while the original copies are kept in the contractors file to prevent loss of originals.

“This original file is in the commission and the reporters did not deem it necessary to find out this claim from the commission either by physical request or relying on the FOI Act.

“This incident happened in 2016 before the arrival of the new board. All records are available for any scrutiny as has always been done by the office of the Auditor-General of the Federation and others interested in knowing what happens in the commission.

“We, therefore, dismiss this report as half-truth and did not comply with the journalistic requirement of paper investigation before rushing to the press.”

Meanwhile, in a post on its official Facebook page, the commission reiterated its commitment to the principle of fairness, justice, and equity.

The commission noted that the principles are enduring ethos for sustainable national peace and unity in Nigeria.
