The Office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Sustainable Development Goals (OSSAP-SDGs) has described as fake news reports making the rounds the Office was queried by the National Assembly over award of N26.9 billion worth of contracts for COVID-19 related procurements.

A statement signed by the office’s head of communications, Mrs Janet McDickson, stressed the office was never queried at anytime over its budgetary allocation by the House during the budget defence or by any other agency of government at any time over award of N26.9bn worth of contracts for procurements of COVID-19 related items.

“We, therefore, see this as fake news and a figment of the imagination of the author,” the statement read, adding projects implementation by the office is subject to budgetary allocations and release of funds.
