Local contractors protest owed entitlement

Local Contractors of Nigeria has called on the Presidency to mandate the Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning to pay all entitlements owed them over the years.

They made the call during a peaceful protest and press conference in Abuja.

The protesters carried placards which read, ‘Local Contractors are dying of starvation’, ‘We borrowed money to execute the contracts’, ‘ Local Contractors are passing through hell’, ‘Most of our members and families have passed on; as there is no money to take care of them’.

this is really terrible
This Provision was made since 2018 for local Contractors to be paid but unfortunately Till now successive ministers of Finance who are vested with responsibility of paying the liabilities refused to do so out of sheer insensitivity, wickedness and corruption
