This was as he also said vigilance and co-monitoring by beneficiary communities were necessary to check the malaise of abandoned and poorly-executed projects.

Ekweremadu said this in Enugu, Enugu State, on Friday, at the closing of  a trainee workshop on the use of science kits for secondary school teachers in Agwu/Aninri/Oji River Federal Constituency.

The workshop was organised by a lawmaker representing the constituency in the House of Representatives, Mr Toby Okechukwu, in partnership with the Scientific Equipment Development Institute, Enugu.

“Democracy is much more than holding elections. The people should hold politicians accountable on their campaign promises.

“The job of monitoring projects is not just for the committees. I urge everyone to join hands to monitor and report back on projects attracted to his or her constituency.

“As for me, I don’t know any contractor. My business is to attract projects and ensure that they are delivered on time and in good quality.

“Any contractor who collects money, but fails to do the work or resorts to shabby work is a candidate for the EFCC and jail”, he said.
