Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday ordered all contractors who abandoned projects in the Niger Delta region to return to site immediately.

Osinbajo gave the order at a stakeholders meeting for sustainable development in the Niger Delta region held in Owerri, Imo State.

Osinbajo was disturbed by the long list of projects owned by NNPC and the Niger Delta Development Commission in different parts of the state and said that such practice must stop.

Osinbajo also said that those contractors who collected money and diverted them would be thoroughly investigated and prosecuted.

“I have today directed that all contractors whose projects have been abandoned must return to site forthwith.

“They must return and I want to say that all these contracts will be investigated thoroughly.

“We will investigate everyone of the contracts and any one of them found to have diverted funds we will ensure that they are prosecuted and that they are brought to justice.

“It is not acceptable for anyone to take projects that are meant to offer succour to the people.

“Especially to the people in oil production communities and to abandon them and them come back and complain that work isn’t being done,” he said.

According to the Acting President the Federal Government will make sure that all of those projects are completed.
