Calabar, March 4, 2016. The Infrastructure Concession and Regulatory Commission, ICRC, yesterday revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari was poised to address infrastructure deficit in the country through Public Private Sector Partnership, PPP.
The Director-General of the ICRC, Aminu Diko, who stated this in Calabar, the Cross Rivers state capital, during a tour of Calabar port, said the visit was in continuation of the team’s tour of port facilities across the country to ascertain the level of compliance by the concessionaires.
While declaring that Buhari was worried about the high level of infrastructure deficit across the country, he said, “Our role is to ensure that these concessions are running properly. And if there is any gap or any lapses, we are going to make a report to the Presidency for necessary action.”
Diko assured that the Commission would be unbiased and transparent in the discharge of its statutory duties, adding that the ICRC does not approve or award contracts but only ensures compliance in line with the ICRC act.
