Nwawuba attracts projects, he doesn't build them

In reaction to a recent attempt to discredit the good efforts of Rt Hon Henry Nwawuba, by a group of people, believed to either be acting out of misinformation and ignorance, or sponsored by some desperate political elements, with their eyes set on 2023, but who do not understand the working of the National Assembly, MaaziTV, after our findings, have decided to clear the air on the issue of projects attracted by lawmakers to their people.


We must understand that there is a divide, between attracting a project and executing it.


The business of attracting any project to the people, is a very difficult task.


A lot of lawmakers from all over the country, are fighting to have as much as they can get, from the scarce resources available to the National Assembly, from the Federal Government.


Any lawmaker, who attracts any project to his people, should be appreciated and not attacked, as there are others, who have not been able to attract anythjng to their people, because they do not understand the workings of the National Assembly, and left out in the sharing of projects.


Rt Hon Henry Nwawuba, is one of the few, who have doggedly ensured that his people are not left out in the sharing of projects, and as much as possible, have always ensured that he gets as much as any other lawmaker can get, for his people.


Nwawuba, like every other lawmaker in the National Assembly, makes his requests and proposals for projects, and attracts those projects in line with the Federal Government approved budget.


All the road projects and others, in every MDA in Nigeria, are approved and done through a bidding process, which Nwawuba does not determine who wins the bidding of these projects. 


Of every project awarded, the Federal Government deducts 7.5% as VAT which is about N2,475,000, and a further 5% as TAX which is about N1,650,000, is also deducted from the total project amount.


The Bill 1 is deducted with the ministry and retention withheld.


Thereafter, the Federal Government usually mark-up a 30% profit for the contractor, which all gives you the actual amount now available for the project and this is not controlled by any lawmaker, whether it is a project attracted by you or not.


Note also that most of these contractors, aren't even mobilized by the MDAs, and borrow money sometimes at high interest rates, to execute the projects while waiting to be paid for work done.


The job of the Federal Representative, is to fight to get those projects approved. Afterwards, it is out of his hands over who builds the projects, and how payments are made.


Further investigation by MaaziTV, into the school block in question, for which Nwawuba was being attacked by either misinformed people, who didn't understand how the National Aseembly works, and how projects are awarded, or who deliberately try to create confusion through lies for their selfish interests, we discovered that the company that built the school block, have yet to receive a kobo from the Projects Development Agency, PRODA, which awarded and supervised the contract for the project.


Nwawuba has the duty, of ensuring that his people are not left out in the sharing process, and is working assiduously, to ensure that a lot more projects are attracted to the people of MBAIKE, and not just to Orodo his community.


Nwawuba represents the entire people of the Federal Constituency, regardless of party affiliations, Local Government or community, and whatever he attracts from the scarce resources available from the Federal Government Approved Budget, must be shared as evenly as possible amongst the entire communities in the MBAIKE.


Nwawuba, have demonstrated an exceptionally commendable level of representation to his people, ensuring they are not left behind in the attraction of projects to them.


To get clarity on projects, the members of the community, should have approached PRODA to clarify to them about the projects. He would have found out that the agency only funded One classroom block, claiming insufficient funding from the Federal Government, rather than trying to be used against Nwawuba, by desperate politicians, who would not be able to perform when put in same position.


It's always worthy of note, that various constituencies may get more than others in the sharing of projects from the Federal Government budget for the National Assembly. Also, a legislator in a lucrative committee, may tend to attract more to his people than others, and usually such lucrative positions are usually reserved for members in the ruling party.


A brief rundown of projects he has already attracted to MBAIKE includes the following READ HERE
