    Bauchi petitions EFCC, alleges APC officials embezzled N1.4bn road fund

    The Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, has accused some elected and appointed public officers who are members of the All Progressives Congress of fraud in a N1.4bn contract for the construction of a major road in the state.

    Although he did not mention the “elected and appointed leaders,” he, however, stated that the state government had already petitioned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission on the matter.

    He stated this in his speech during the inauguration of 24.5 kilometres Itas -Gadau Road construction project on Thursday by the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde at Itas Gadau local government area of Bauchi State.

    He said that the N1.4bn was collected for the construction of the Soro-Miya road project but no work had been done.

    Mohammed said, “We have come and we have discovered that we have a lot of challenges, the Central Zone of Bauchi State have been short-changed over the years by successive administrations.

    “The only road traversing the Central Zone is the one are going to other places. We are doing three roads within the first tenure.

    “The Miya road has been encumbered by corruption; some people who are calling themselves leaders have collected the money, but we are not here to waste our time opening cardboards and looking for skeletons.

    “We are calling on the EFCC and ICPC to make sure that they investigate what we have forwarded to them on Soro-Miya Road because over N1.4bn has been collected.”
