A federal high court in Lagos has asked the federal government to publish the details of contractors who failed to execute power projects after receiving payment.
Kolawole Oluwadare, deputy director of Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), said Chuka Obiozor, a judge at the court, made the order on Friday
He said the judge ordered the full details of the contractors who were awarded electricity projects and paid since the return to democracy in 1999.
In February, SERAP sued Babatunde Fashola, immediate former minister of power, works and housing, asking him to provide details of the names and whereabouts of the contractors as stipulated in a freedom of information (FOI) request to the ministry.
In May, the minister provided the names of one of the contractors, but SERAP responded saying it needed details of names of other contractors that have collected public funds yet failed to execute power projects
