We are, consequently, calling on the IMC (of the NDDC) to begin settlement of such contractors to stay clear of banks confiscating their residences made use of as securities.”
In a declaration on Sunday by the LPCDI national president, Rueben Wilson, and the secretary, Nature Kieghe, they additionally lament that some contractors were dealing with dangers of expulsion from their houses and other property forfeiture to banks over overdue loans collected to fund the projects.
They claimed, “The contractors that are primarily impacted are the ones that have completed the “emergency contracts” awarded by the Ekere Nsima government. The majority of them obtained loan from the banks with their homes as securities to fund the implementation of the “emergency contracts.”
