By Ozumi Abdul

In its bid to encourage people in their various communities to monitor abandoned projects in their respective communities, the Centre For Information Technology and Development, (CITAD) has on Thursday rewarded three university students across Nigeria with various prizes as the winners of this year’s ‘Report A Project’ program.

The program which has the support of MacArthur Foundation, is an annual program that is geared towards monitoring abandoned projects in mostly local communities by CITAD in the quest of eradicating the scourge of corruption in Nigeria for sustainable development.

While speaking during the presentation of the prizes to the winners, the organization’s Program Officer, Ali Sabo noted that the program is an annual competition organized by CITAD to encourage people in their various localities to track and monitor abandoned projects by successive administrations.

Sabo added that no meaningful development can be achieved in any society if projects that are awarded, and meant to bring succour to the people are abandoned half way or totally.

He appreciated the efforts of this year’s winners of the prizes, encouraging them to do more in their societies so that the scourge of abandoned projects will be reduced to the lowest minimum in the country.

“It’s a way of encouraging people to put more efforts in monitoring abandoned projects in their localities or societies.

“This is the 7th year of the award, and this year’s edition went through rigorous evaluation by panel of judges before these three winners emerged from the five people that submitted their reports.

” We appreciate you for your efforts and we expect you to continue doing more, as well telling others to do so”, he submitted.

The winners of the prizes are Aliyu Musa from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria (ABU) who emerged 1st, Hauwa’u Abdullahi Isyaku from Kano University of Science and Technology (KUST) came 2nd while Auwal Ibrahim Musa from Bayero University Kano emerged 3rd.

The winner of the first position, Aliyu Musa expressed his delight while also thanking CITAD for giving him and the winners of other prizes the chance to participate in this year’s competition.

He promised he will continue to do more, as well as encouraging others in his community to either start or continue reporting abandoned projects in their various communities.

Kwankwaso was responding to a question put to him by Nasiru Adamu El-Hikaya that the government decided not to extend the deadline because politicians who want to go into election will use the notes for vote buying.

“If you are talking about hiding of new Naira Notes go and check state government houses controlled by the APC you will definitely find the new Naira Notes,we have information that they have called the bank mangers and are responsible for the scarcity”Kwankwaso alleges
