The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) yesterday said its Constituency and Executive Projects Tracking Group (CEPTG) tracked N219.844 billion projects that were poorly executed by 176 federal government agencies.

The commission’s chairman, Dr Musa Adamu Aliyu, disclosed this yesterday while briefing newsmen in Lagos.

He said the tracking exercise focused on critical sectors like education, agriculture, healthcare and infrastructure and aimed to ensure that government funds are directed towards impactful projects that benefit vulnerable Nigerians.

He said the 2024 phase six exercise, which began in November 2023 and continued through the first quarter of 2024, covered key sectors in 26 states and the FCT.

Dr Adamu said 1,721 government-funded projects were tracked during this phase, with investigations ongoing for some identified infractions, including underperformed, shoddily executed, abandoned, uncompleted and hoarded projects.

Regarding plea bargain, Dr Adamu noted that the option saved time and money and helped the government in recovering stolen funds.
