Fraud: PAP Set To Prosecute Erring Staff, Contractors And Vendors


The Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) has said that it has uncovered unsavory acts of fraud perpetrated by some of its vendors and contractors.

Interim Administrator of the Programme, Col. Milland Dixon Dikio (rtd), who announced this in a press statement, said the office is currently investigating these activities to determine how widespread and the extent of involvement or connivance with internal elements within the programme.

Dikio said that while the investigation is ongoing, it will however not stop the payment of those whose contracts and documents have been verified and reconciled as soon as the expected funds are released.

The Interim Administrator recalled that before the close of the year 2020, the PAP sequentially paid a minimum of 104 contractors that had hitherto been owed, adding that this process will continue until everyone is paid what they are owed, subject to the availability of funds.

He further said that it must be noted that while the continuing process is evidence of the PAP’s commitment to its mandate which covers the delegates, the investigations will continue to ascertain the issues that gave rise to the allegation.

Dikio advised vendors and contractors whose contracts have not been revalidated, have not received an approval to self-fund or been mobilized for their respective contracts are advised to suspend and maintain the status quo.
