In what can be described as a brazen disregard for the anti-corruption war by the President Mu­hammadu Buhari-led gov­ernment, authorities of the Nigeria Police has refused to pay a contractor the sum of N6,301,200 eight years after completion of job.
The contracting firm-Sa­griis Technical Services, has therefore petitioned Presi­dent Muhammadu Buhari appealing to him to use his good office to launch investi­gation into the matter in or­der to unravel why the police refused to pay the money de­spite several appeals.
In a petition to the Presi­dent titled: ‘Attention, Pres­ident Muhammadu Buhari, your anti-corruption war is on trial over the failure of po­lice force to pay agreed con­tract sum of N6,301,200.00’, the contractor appealed to the president to impress on the police to pay him his money.
According to the Chair­man of Sagriis Technical Ser­vices, Solomon Chiemezie Nnolim, the petition became necessary considering that he completed the job and all the relevant documents were signed by the relevant police authorities yet they refused to pay him the agreed amount.
In the petition, a copy which was obtained by The AUTHORITY in Abuja, Chiemezie explained: “Be­tween April 2009 and De­cember 2010, the Nigeria Po­lice authorities through the ‘C’ Department, Force Head­quarters, Abuja, requested for various sets of electrical and electronics materials to be supplied to the department which I complied in the spirit of business transaction.
