Benue SUBEB Rejects Claims Of Cashiers Been Arrested In Connection With Award Of Contracts

The Benue State Universal Basic Education Board has denied claims made in a publication in Punch Newspapers that its cashiers were arrested for fraudulent activities  in the Award of the 710 contracts worth N7.6 Billion Naira it recently awarded to renovate primary schools in the state.

This was made known in a statement signed by  Sar Erdoo, the Information Officer of the Board and made available to IPN.  
According to him, two cashiers of the board, Mr Paul Mella (Cashier 2) and Jacob Ageva (Cashier 1) were on Tuesday this week taken by policemen to the Police Headquarters in connection with the investigation of the police into the salary account of the board for the period January 2011 to January 2015. Particularly when they failed to furnish the police with details concerning the account in spite of the directive of the Chairman of the Board, Dr Philip Tachin.
The claim that the Arrest is in connection with the N7.6b contracts is mischievous and blatant falsehood.

“On the claim that Due process was not followed in the award of the contracts for the Renovation and construction of 710 primary schools at SUBEB, those who are aware of events at Benue SUBEB and the state can recall that on the 4th of March, 2016, the Benue SUBEB publicly Advertised the Pre-qualification Notice and Invitation for Tender for the 4th Quarter 2011- 4th quarter 2015.
This was advertised in three National papers, and one local paper.
Pre-qualification notices were submitted, and not less than 1500 companies were qualified to bid for the 715 contracts.

The opening of bids for the contracts was also done in the full glare of the public for the first time in the state on the 27th of may, 2016.
Since the number of companies that bided for the Contracts was more than twice the number of available contracts, there was no way every company will be awarded a contract at SUBEB.
For one to now relate the ongoing investigation into a Bank Accounts at SUBEB under the last administration to the current Renovation/Construction of primary schools amounts to blatant falsehood and mischief, and must be dismissed by members of the public.” The statement ended
