Despite Millions in Releases, Police Secondary School Project Abandoned in Adamawa

The Federal Government allocated N220.8 million for the construction of a police secondary school in Adamawa State, two years after, the project has not seen the light of the day.

According to Tracka, a collaborative community of citizens tracking government projects across the country, the money was captured in 2021 and 2022 budgetary allocations. It added that N160 million was released last year and N60.8 million earlier this year.

During a visit to the site, Tracka monitoring team revealed that there was a block of one-storey building taken over by weeds, adding that the building is already collapsing. Similarly, there are other two dilapidating bungalows adjacent to the one-storey building, the team added.

“In the 2021 FG budget, N60.8m was allocated for the same project, despite the N160m, at the project site, there are few constructions of buildings that have been done, The one block of a  one-story and bungalow buildings.

“There was nothing that took place on this site during the last year’s budget period and this 2022 budget. The building has been overgrown by weeds,” Tracka said. 

It is said that, when completed, the project will help the families of the police officers in the state and its other neighbouring states.

The team, however, pleaded with the concerned authority including the police force to fast-track the completion of the “abandoned” project. 

Efforts to reach the Police Service Commission were fruitless as its official number could not be reached at press time. However, an enquiry sent to the commission is yet to be responded to.
