WHEN THE COST OF SIGNPOSTS ARE MORE THAN THE PROJECT EXECUTED BY OREDO COUNCIL:

The latest findings by the discreet investigation team of Edo Civil Society Organisations have revealed the cost of a grass clearing project executed by Oredo Local Government Council in Edo state well cheaper than the signposts to announce it to members of the public.

A deeper probe into the grass clearing projects as revealed by an insider who preferred anonymous showed that the labourers (aboki) that was engaged to clear the small areas of grass accommodating a statue depicting the ‘olokun’ goddess and a paparazzi area for newly wedded couples just in front of the council’s secretariat was priced at N10, 000 (ten thousand naira) while the signposts were constructed with a mouth watering sum of N250, 000 (two hundred and fifty thousand naira). Meanwhile the said maintenance done was not effected on the destroyed iron barricades neither were the areas painted.

Our investigation team was also informed of the various illegal fees collected by officials of the council without receipts. This aspect of investigation will unearth a lot of things going on around and in the council.

Our investigation team has been mandated to collate the projects embarked upon by the current chairman, Jenkins Evbareke Osunde.

STAY GLUE TO THIS SPACE FOR MORE AS THEY TRICKLE IN.
