PEGI CONSTITUENCY ROAD PROJECT

REPORT SUMMARY

For ten years, the contract for the construction of the 14-kilometer road leading to the community and awarded at the sum of N767 million was abandoned by the contractors.

ACTIVITIES

In furtherance of our engagement with the Pegi Community, PRIMORG invited the community leaders for a meeting and several democratic actions were initiated and adopted to be carried out jointly by both the community and PRIMORG.

The community carried out the following activities:

  • The filing of a Freedom of Information (FOI) request by the community themselves.
  • The community leaders request for a meeting with relevant FCT agencies to mount pressure on the government for action on the FOI request and to order the contractor back to the site.
  • The use of peaceful protests to the office of the Minister of the FCT by residents of PEGI to draw attention to the neglect and abandonment of the road.

PRIMORG carried out the following activities:

  • The amplification of the story on Public Conscience in this wise – ‘Tracking Projects: Pegi Community Battles FCTA on Road Construction’ on the 22nd of July, 2020.
  • Held a meeting with Pegi Community and ICIR on the 15th of September 2020 to encourage ICIR to carry out a proper investigation on the road project.
