In what appears to be the final looting of funds meant for constituency projects, some members of the National Assembly have allegedly perfected plans to abandon some projects they have been fully mobilised to execute, a source in Ministry of Power, Works and Housing says.
The source who pleaded anonymity said members of the Nigerian Senate, especially those from the Southern Nigeria are worst hit in this desperate looting agenda.
The source alleged that while some of the lawmakers have formed an unholy alliance with the Minister of Finance, Zainab Shamsuna Ahmed who is also not sure of being re-appointed into the Federal Executive Council to complete some of these projects through the Executive, others have shown lack of concern but perfecting last minute plans to go with the funds mapped out for such constituency projects.
In the category of those who are less concerned according to the source are the Senator representing Abia North, Sen. Mao Ohuabunwa, the Anambra Central Senator, Chief Victor Umeh and others.
The source fingered some Senators from the North West and North East to be using their closeness to minister of Finance to complete some of their zonal interventions while the money meant for them as constituency projects lies in their pockets.
The source also wondered why the Minister of Finance will abandon so many of the projects initiated by the Federal government to instead finance projects that the Senators have been fully mobilised to execute for their constituents.
Meanwhile, efforts to reach the Spokesperson of the Senate, Sen. Sabi Abdullahi proved abortive.
