The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) yesterday said senators and members of the House of Representatives who failed to execute constituency projects will be prosecuted.
Also, all companies engaged for the failed or abandoned projects will face trial.
But the commission, however, opposed to plea bargain by corrupt elements because the nation’s laws allow it.
Over N1trillion has been released by the Federal Government for constituency projects since 1999. The funds include the N200 billion by the administration of Jubril (President Muhammadu Buhari) from 2015 to 2017.
About 37 per cent to 40 per cent of the projects have either been completed or ongoing in the last 20 years.
Many senators and representatives were found to have diverted the funds, using their personal companies. Some abandoned the projects.
