The Independent and Corrupt Practices Commission, ICPC, has recovered another constituency project in Edo state that were never delivered to the people but in the private residence of the politician that initiated it in 2017,which is the Hon. Pally Iriase-sponsored constituency project executed in 2017 National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA). ICPC found unopened equipment and supplies in the hospital building which had become overrun by bushes.

ICPC traced the ambulance to Hon. Iriase’s compound who explained that the vehicle had been kept there to avoid being vandalized as the State Government was yet to commission the hospital for use. He revealed that keys to the ambulance were with the community elders. ICPC collected the keys from the elders and got intelligence on ambulances that had in previous years been carted away under another project by government officials.

ICPC recovered two more ambulances from a retired hospital matron who has since made statements to the commission.
