Completion of Jigawa Multipurpose Hall Gulped N200 Million – But it’s Leaking

No less than N200m was allocated to the Completion of the Multipurpose Hall at Jahun town, the headquarters of Jahun Local Government Area of Jigawa State.

The multimillion naira project was sponsored by Hon. Sa’idu Yusuf Miga, a member representing Jahun/Miga Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives and was awarded to STEPHJACK GLOBAL INVESTMENT LTD as a contracting company in the 2023 federal government budget.

Tracka, an accountability platform owned by the Nigerian civic organisation that seeks citizen engagement in public institutions for societal change BudgIT, discovered that the project was poorly executed despite the huge amount allocated just to complete it.

According to the platform, only a few months after its completion, the roof started leaking while the painting was peeling off.

“N200m was allocated to the Completion of Multipurpose Hall at Jahun in Jahun/Miga Federal Constituency Jigawa state in the 2023 FG Budget.

“We tracked and reported that this project was poorly done. Only a few months after completion in March 2023, the roof is already leaking and the painting is already peeling off.

Tracka called on the implementing agency of the project Border Communities Development Agency (BCDA) to call the contractor to correct the shoddy job done and deliver quality work.

However, WikkiTimes’ search at the NG-Check showed that STEPHJACK GLOBAL INVESTMENT LTD was incorporated in Makurdi, the Benue State capital in 2015 with Registration Number 1287034, but its current status is unknown. 

Similarly, the search at the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) here, here and here showed that the contracting firm is ‘Inactive’ and no further information such as phone number or email was provided.

A mail sent to the lawmaker who nominated the project requesting clarification with respect to the project was not responded to at the press time.
