ENetSuD, Ajulo-Opin, Petition ICPC on Missing Tractor

The Elites Network for Sustainable Development (ENetSuD) and Hon. AbdulRaheem Tunji Olawuyi (Ajulo-Opin) have jointly written a petition to the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) in Abuja over a tractor constituency project of 2017 that was allegedly delivered to the constituency but now missing in the constituency.

In the petition jointly signed by the Coordinator of ENetSuD (Dr. Alagbonsi Abdullateef) and Hon. Olawuyi Ajulo-Opin, the duo told the Chairman of ICPC that the tractor, whose contract sum was Eighteen Million, Five Hundred and Fifty-Two Thousand, One Hundred and Thirty-Five Naira (₦18,552,135), was awarded to Tamgaj Service Limited by the Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN). 

It will be recalled that ENetSuD wrote a Freedom of Information (FOI) request to the SMEDAN to ask for financial and technical details about the tractor and many other projects in the 2017 Federal Government's budget executed in Kwara State. 

Consequently, SMEDAN told ENetSuD that the tractor was procured and delivered to the constituency office of the facilitator of the project in the 8th NASS (Late Hon. Funke Adedoyin), and directed ENetSuD to the office of the facilitator for the location of the tractor. ENetSuD contacted her aides (still alive) but was not provided with the location of the tractor.

ENetSuD further contacted the contractor who also confirmed that he delivered the tractor to the constituency office of the Late Hon. Funke Adedoyin. However, ENetSuD and the office of Hon. Raheem Tunji Olawuyi (the House of Representatives member presently representing the constituency in the 9th NASS) have not been able to locate the tractor till date.

The petitioners asked the ICPC to investigate the alleged diversion of the tractor, locate it, and hand it over to the citizens of Ekiti/Irepodun/Isin/Oke-Ero Federal Constituency in Kwara state so as to promote their Agricultural activities and boost food production in line with the Federal Government’s efforts to diversify the economy.
