Some contractors on Wednesday, stormed the National Assembly complex in Abuja to demand the payment of project fees allegedly owed them by the federal government.

They claimed to have executed various projects amounting to N8bn for the Project Development Institute, Enugu but were yet to get payment from the government through the Ministry of Science and Technology.


According to the contractors who chanted various solidarity songs, the projects were constituency projects done since December 2020.

The leader of the group, Joy Uche who spoke with journalists, lamented that it had been difficult for them to take care of their families and personal needs due to the non-payment of their entitlements.


Another contractor, Favour Emenike revealed to journalists that they were in the National Assembly to plead with the lawmakers to prevail on the Minister and Ogonnaya Onu, to pay them their money.

Emenike added that some of their colleagues have already lost their lives in the struggle without getting payment.
