N88.3 million Bridge that is Plateau State Lawmaker Project

The N88.3 million bridge Plateau Lawmaker claimed to have built has become shocking to many.

Mr. Joshua Dariye, a Senator and former governor of the state in 2016 nominated the bridge as part of his constituency project.

Under the deal, Dariye said the sum of  N88.3 million will be expended in the construction of 18 kilometres road in Tangur-Horop-Mangar road Phase I & III of Plateau state.

Part of the road project was the construction of a bridge and culverts  in Bokkos local government area of the state.

UDEME team who was at the site to monitor and evaluate the project say the only project implemented was a bridge and grading done on the road.

Dariye was convicted and sentenced to prison for engaging in a huge graft while he was the Plateau state governor.

Dariye is not the only offender, Nigeria Lawmakers hide under the cover of constituency project to nominate and access money for  projects to be  implemented in the  constituency they represent.

Often when the money is released using Ministry Departments and Agencies (MDAs), the Lawmakers simply disappear.

Many of the projects are never done, and in some cases where projects are done, they are substandard and highly inflated.
