The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has forwarded to the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) documents from some of the ministry’s agencies providing some details regarding the names of contractors that allegedly collected money for electricity projects but failed to execute any projects, and inviting SERAP to “inspect a compendium of verified and paid/outstanding liabilities of contractors, kept at the offices of the Nigeria Electricity Liability Management Limited/GTE.”

This development was disclosed Sunday in a statement by SERAP deputy director, Kolawole Oluwadare.

The ministry’s letter signed on Fashola’s behalf by the Permanent Secretary (Power), Louis Edozien, was sent to SERAP last week.

The letter reveals that: “Pow Technologies Limited, an Abuja based company, was in 2014 awarded a contract for the supply and installation of test and maintenance equipment relays, etc to various NAPTIN regional training centers (RTCs) (LOT15), with the total contract sum of N87,763,302.40, out of which N79,404,892.66 was paid to Pow Technologies Limited.”
