The Hon. Herman Hembes-led House of Representatives Committee on Federal Capital Territory(FCT) has queried the Minister of the FCT, Muhammed Bello, for spending N55 million to build the gate house in the official residence of the Vice President. According to the Committee, the FCT administration also built a mosque that could accommodate only 12 persons for N96 million and a small chapel which will take care of only 20 persons for N86 million at the VP’s residence. Hembes described as reckless expenditure in the award of contracts in the FCT when the minister appeared before the committee to defend its 2016 Budget proposal. He then ordered that the alleged bloated contracts be halted. The Vice President’s aide-de-camp, ADC’s residence will be built for N288 million,while the same amount also is expected to build the residence of the Chief Security Officer, CSO, of the Vice President. Hermes said he wondered why the figures were so high,while he expressed dismay that work had stopped at the Vice President’s official residence by Julius Berger after allegedly collecting about N6.8 billion out of the contract sum of N7 billion.
