He said abandoning projects after spending heavily amounts to a huge waste of the nation’s resources.

This was contained in a statement posted on Shettima’s X handle (formerly known as Twitter) @officialSKSM on Friday, June 7.

“As we commission this state-of-the-art edifice as the official residence of the Vice President, we are fulfilling a longstanding commitment and reaffirming our unwavering dedication to accountability, transparency and efficient utilization of resources for the betterment of our nation.

“I hold a very strong opinion that abandoning projects after substantial expenditure have been incurred is inherently wasteful, and it is in the best interest of the Government and the public to see them through to completion.”

Photos of the newly renovated building have continued to trend on social media.
