SHOCKING: Nigeria’s MDG office pays N154 million for one borehole

The only boreholes provided by NNPC for people of Ogale community and later got contaminated

Nigeria’s Millennium Development Goals (MDG) office spent N154.2 million to construct a single borehole in Abuja, in what appears a shocking example of contract inflation that has helped undermine the country’s ability to achieve its MDG goals.

Drilling a single borehole in Abuja averages N1.5 million. A hydrology firm told PREMIUM TIMES that amount should cover drilling and casing, installation of a solar-powered submersible pump, steel tower for the tanks, tanks, pipes, joints & suckers, installation and labour.

The firm allowed an expanded estimate of N10 million if a water treatment facility is included alongside other optional accessories.

The Abuja borehole, constructed at Gwarinpa, an expansive estate in the federal capital, had no such fittings. Indeed, the borehole had long become dysfunctional and was no longer dispensing water to the residents when PREMIUM TIMES visited in June 2015.

Still, the Abuja MDG office told this newspaper it was more concerned with service delivery to the people, than the amount it takes to do so.

The eight target goals of the MDGs, set at the Millennium Summit of the United Nations in 2000, are eradication of extreme poverty and hunger; achieving universal primary education; promotion of gender equality; reduction of child mortality; improvement of maternal health; combating HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases; ensuring environmental sustainability and developing a global partnership for development. 

In 2010/2011 alone, N249.26billion was channelled through Nigeria’s federal ministries, departments and agencies, “Quick Wins” (Constituency projects, but now called Special projects), Conditional Grants Scheme (CGS) to state governments, and Special presidential interventions for MDGs programmes and projects.

Analysts say poor execution of projects, racketeering, inflation of contracts, and other contractual breaches are some of the factors responsible for Nigeria’s inability to achieve its MDG goals.

The Gwanrinpa borehole, constructed at N154, 242,200, according to the contract and budget papers obtained by PREMIUM TIMES, is located at Galadima ‘I’ community of the estate.

The contract was awarded to Zarm Global Service on March 28, 2008. The company has no address, contact person or telephone number.

Another N110.6 million was paid for the construction of a borehole at Tungan Nasara community of Jiwa Ward in Abuja Municipal Area Council. The contract was awarded to Global And Global Venture Limited on March 29, 2008. Also, the company has no address or contact person.

When our reporter visited one of the project sites supposedly executed by the MDG office at a primary school in Dutse Alhaji community and another in Kubwa area of Abuja, there were no signs of any projects in the areas. 

Residents of the area told PREMIUM TIMES that the borehole had stopped working immediately after its completion. According to budget details, N8, 802,185 was paid for the construction of the borehole.

Obinna Okafor, a representative of the company in charge of the project, Hunnigdale International Limited, provided no details beyond saying the project was moved from its initial site to Gbazango West Layout of Kubwa.

At Nanda Community of Agyana Pandagi Ward in Abaji Area Council, Abuja, a borehole constructed at N8.1 million was also not functional.

Ochiez Signature, which won the contract, has no office address. Its manager, Onu Clement, told our reporter the firm operates from his house at New Nyanya in Nasarawa State. 

Investigation revealed that a greater percentage of the 1,333 projects executed by the Abuja office of the MDGs between 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011 in Abuja communities, were either below the set standard or had been abandoned by contractors.

When PREMIUM TIMES sought the response of the MDGs office regarding the construction of a single borehole at the cost of N154, 242,200, and the poor state of the projects, the director of projects at the office, Mr. Dalhatu, said he could not discuss issues of contract or speak for the companies.

Although an official who spoke on the condition of anonymity faulted the payment of N154 million for drilling of a single borehole, he said they were more interested in seeing the projects working, and that they will check available records, and consult with the MDGs focal person to find out what the problem was.

    Yoruba and Aboki fraud is the major problem Nigeria has to counter for any credible war against corruption to make sense. EFCC’s Lamorde hijacked N1trn recovered by that anti-graft agency while Ribadu was away. From OBJ to IBB, the cankerworn called corruption is mainly perpetrated by greedy Yoruba and their mumu aboki cohorts. The Aborigines just made it worse with their, “our-turn-to-schop” mentality of the last administration. Nigeria is a jungle full of creepy animals!

    You said drilling a borehole in arid Abuja city should cost 1.5 million Naira, right?
    I agree with you. Now how much less should it cost in water drained Lagos state?
    Surely far less, right? But see what the born-thief called RAJI FASHOLA spent.

    “• The immediate past Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, spent N139m

        Akinwunmi Ambode, the new governor of Lagos state,
        has yesterday revoked the allocation of over 25 plots of land by his
        predecessor, Babatunde Fashola, in his final days in office. Most of the plots,
        it is alleged, were allocated to Fashola’s relatives, aides and associates —
        including Yewande Animashaun, his cousin who also served as his special adviser
        on public health, and Wale Ahmed, who served as his commissioner for special duties.
        A female newscaster with a Lagos-based TV station was one of the beneficiaries,
        TheCable learnt. The land was officially parcelled into 25 plots and shared by
        Fashola who went on to sign the certificates of occupancy on May 26, three days
        to his exit from office.

      Please, you do not know what you are talking about, it is easier to get clean water in Abuja than it is to get in Swampy area of Marina, Ikoyi etc. Though Industrial borehole and and its treatment plant should cost upto N40M in Ikoyi and Marina. but in the interlard it could be cheaper

      • Son of Man

        @aladeadekunleoluwaadeshinaola:disqus

        N40 million my foot! What nonsense! Are you a thief too? Go to Ikeja and do your costing.
        A borehole Raji Fashola said he did in IKEJA should never ever cost 70million Naira each.
        Anyone saying Raji Fashola should be caged and imprisoned for stealing, is on point.

            I think President Muhammadu Buhari must be regretting his terrible misjudgement
            for taking Raji Fashola along to Germany and advertising him to the global community
            as his (Buhari’s) best understanding of a model. That was the day Buhari’s government
            morally collapsed.

            Till today, Muhammadu Buhari has not recovered from that policy blunder.
            He will never recover from it. Buhari destroyed himself by praising the highest level
            of corruption in Nigeria, which Raji Fashola represents. Buhari must be allowed to stew
            in his juices if he is poor at good judgment and in simple arithmetic of revenue figures.

  • bob

    it is nothing new, during the OBJ era in my state, Akwa Ibom state (Victor Attah was governor at the time)… the road I lived at in Abak local government area call “Nursery school road” was awarded to some Nigerian contractor, he came in and poured red sand and spray on the red sand some tar, after two weeks, they were gone and road became much worse that it was previously, that road was contracted a to new contractor during Akpabio’s last four years and has been since completed a very nice, durable road. four me living in rural Akwa Ibom town that was the first glimpse into the failures and corruption in the Nigerian system of Governance. since then have been research the American system because ours is derived from there to see, if there are similar cases and I think there is something, inherently wrong with our system of governance that things like these will always happen, irrespective of who is in power. for the Americans the FBI does its best to investigate and limit these types of crimes, and they investigate everyone and resist every influence from government or otherwise. But in NIgeria, these organizations are very easily controlled by the government, therefore their ability to be independent is undermined.

      disgraced himself. Raji Fashola who should be flogged in prison is the
      one Buhari took to banquet in Germany. Raji Fashola who stole the future of
      Lagos youths and destroyed the state with thefts; a criminal who said he spent
      650 million Naira on the government house car park in Marina, a car park that
      had no pothole or fault, in a city where 27% of Lagos youths have no job, a
      Raji Fashola who is an inarticulate and unreasoning local street urchin without
      brain, is the one Buhari took along to desecrate Nigeria’s remaining slender
      honour – a thief without compare!.

          and a criminal. What Lagosians are talking about is the number of years he will be sent to prison.
          My neighbour here even said that Raji Fashola should just pack his pants and go to Onikan Zone 2
          police station to apply there for voluntary imprisonment in his own interest because he will be slapped all over the place by angry youths who are setting a trap to catch him anywhere in Lagos state.

      The immediate past Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, spent N139m on the drilling of two boreholes at the Lagos House, Ikeja.

      The project was completed by Deux Projects Limited according to a report published by the state government

      The report, which was part of the awarded contracts by the Lagos State Tenders Board in 2013, was seen on the website of the Lagos State Public Procurement Agency.

      In the same year, N640m was spent by the Fashola administration for the reconstruction of a car park and other associated works at the Lagos House, Marina. The report stated that the N640m contract was given to Julius Berger Plc as part of phase two of the reconstruction of Lagos House where Fashola lived during his eight years in government.

      In the same year, N300m was spent on the relocation of cables belonging to the Power Holding Company of Nigeria at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital. The contract was awarded to Deux Projects Limited.

    Just see and feel the levity with which Nigerian officials react to these obvious rapes on Nigeria! Hear one of them:
    “…the Abuja MDG office told this newspaper it was more concerned with
    service delivery to the people, than the amount it takes to do so.”
    The guy who made this statement was not moved or concerned about the level of corruption involved! And we talk about stamping out corruption in Nigeria? Buhari has a lot of work and I wish him all the luck. Our shout against corruption is only directed against people at the apex of authority but we have no inkling that this evil has trickled down to every level of society, including people at the so-called grassroots.

    Nigeria has a serious problem.
