In a bid to swiftly resolve tensions rising from the money owed to contractors responsible for the construction of Abuja Mass Housing Project, the Federal Housing Authority, FHA has assured payments latest by Friday, March 19.

According to the FHA Management, the delay in disbursing funds to settle the debts is that the agency has made it a point of duty to follow due process.

As contained in a statement the agency forwarded to newsmen via Head of Public Affairs, Kenneth Chigelu, Wednesday, FHA emphasised that the payment is for contractors who had completed their projects.

The statement read in part, “The management of FHA just rose from a meeting with our contractors with a resolution that all contractors who have completed their jobs would receive their payments latest by Friday, 19th March ,2021.

“The management of FHA did not deliberately withhold the payment of our contractors, with whom the authority has a long standing good business relationship with.

“The little delay in payment was as a result of the management’s stance on due diligence, before payments are made. It is good to note that this issue has been amicably resolved’’.

On Tuesday, March 26, in the premises of FHA, contractors operating under the aegis of Federal Housing Authority Contractors Association, earlier staged a protest against FHA citing delay in payment despite project completion.
