What the #RebuildKogi project has done is to develop a unique capital projects penetration model through which government presence will reach every community in our state by way of at least one capital project fully funded by the state government with emphasis on education, health, community relations, security, electricity, industrialization and commerce.
A committee will be set up comprising the traditional, religious, women and youth societies in every community in Kogi State. The town unions will also be represented. Each committee will receive an instant cash payment of N25M immediately for the purpose of embarking on any capital project of their choice within that community devoid of interference.
The communities will be fully in charge from the point of disbursement of funds till completion of projects. They will also nominate their preferred contractor. All the government will do is ensure proper documentation, monitor work progress and commission the projects which come with a completion timeline not exceeding 365 days.
