The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), on Thursday, urged Osun state communities to speak out on any abandoned constituency projects in their areas.
Prof. Bolaji Owasanoye, ICPC Chairman declared during a town hall meeting on “My Constituency, My Project, ”organised by the ICPC in collaboration with the National Orientation Agency (NOA), in Osogbo.
According to him, community members must learn to alert government officials on poor projects in their constituency to hold their representatives accountable.
He said; ”Constituency projects are not donations by the legislators representing them, but it is the right of the communities from the government representing them.
“Your representatives in the legislature who select constituency projects do so because they are closer to you, and it is expected that they understand your needs,” he added.
The ICPC boss noted that the commission would continue to track community projects to ensure they were not only developed and implemented by the executive arm of government but to specifications.
