The sum of N38 million was approved for the project in 2019, other approvals came in subsequent years, but findings revealed that though the total contract sum was paid, the job is yet to commence.

Stonegate Quaries Limited has its office at 1011 Domkat Bali LN Mabushi District, Abuja, is the company handling the project according to a Metal board square fixed at the project location that carriers details about the project, client, contractor and the supervision of the project, but the company is not registered with CAC.

When contacted by the media over the project, Commissioner for Works, Engineer Idris Wada simply said: “who told you the company is not qualified, and what is your problem with that, is the work not been done properly or did the company not pay tax”.
