Reports revealed that that payments were made twice for one project, and contractors delivered coaches and locomotives, below the specification given to them.
Reports say the level of looting that went on, under the guise of the Rehabilitation of Railway tracks and the procurement of Coaches and Locomotives, is massive.
Vanguard Newspapers reports that a source close to the House of Representatives Ad-hoc Committee, investigating the project, said “Nigerians would be shocked at the level of massive frauds committed by highly placed government functionaries when the findings of this committee are made public.”
According to Vanguard Newspapers, a source said that “former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF and two former National Chairmen of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who held very key positions on the Board of the NRC were said to have been fingered as having taken decisions that were less than in public interest in the rehabilitation project.”
Vanguard also reports that payments were made twice for one project, and contractors delivered coaches and locomotives, below the specification given to them.
