He disclosed this as he answered questions at a news conference in Abuja on Monday.

On how constituency projects are executed, his words,” The constituency projects have generated some controversy, but they are essential projects.

“They also suffer the same fate under national projects, when there is no sufficient fund.

“When there is no sufficient fund, we can not have 100 per cent execution of projects.

“As far as I can remember, the highest implementation rate was 70 per cent in the past.

“I believe that with more revenue coming into the coffers of Federal Government in the light of what we have been able to do with the amendments to PSC and the Finance Bill, the percentage implementation of all projects will increase.”
