FERMA partners SIP on public property recovery

The Federal Roads Maintenance Agency, FERMA, has said it is ready to partner with the Special Investigation Panel, SIP, on recovery of public property.

This was made known by Managing Director/CEO, Engr. Nuruddeen Rafindadi, when he received chairman of the panel, Barr. Okoi Obono-Obla and some members at FERMA headquarters recently in Abuja.

A statement by Director/Head Communication and Public Relations, Mrs. Maryam Sanusi, quoted Rafindadi as saying that the agency was aware of the enormous task before the SIP and it was a privilege to partner with the panel on recovery of public property.

"This, he said, will facilitate the effective monitoring of the process of awarding contracts, ensuring that contractors bidding for contracts have the expertise to meet with the acceptable standard, to reflect the judicious use of the money released by the government."

Earlier, chairman of the panel, Obono-Obla, stated that the purpose of the visit was to acquaint the agency of its activities and to extend a hand of partnership to FERMA, being the sole maintenance outfit of federal roads in the country.
