The CCECC Nigeria Limited (CCECC) has refuted the reports in the media that the company and other Chinese companies have been backlisted by the World Bank.
CCECC said, the report as published was clearly a misrepresentation of the World Bank Press release and designed to mislead readers and stakeholders as none of CCECC and its affiliates has committed any fraud or corruption in Nigeria or any other countries of the world.
It said, as confirmed by the World Bank that it was another construction company, wholly-owned by China Railway Construction Corporation Ltd., established in 2012 in China that violated the World Bank’s Procurement Guidelines during the prequalification and bidding process in Georgia, Asia.
According to the World Bank publication, the misconduct by the said company borders on submitting wrong information regarding personnel, equipment and experience during the prequalification and bidding process for a highway construction contract and not corruption as sensationally reported by some media.
As part of a settlement agreement, The World Bank debarred the mother company, China Railway Construction Corporation Ltd. and all its controlled affiliates and subsidiaries from bidding for World Bank-financed new projects from June, 2019 for a period of nine (9) months.
