When the term auditing is used, it is often associated with accounting processes and more with money. Today accountant do not only audit expenditure but also audit engineering systems like engineering base infrastructure by subletting the engineering aspect of the auditing to engineers who might not be adequately knowledgeable in project auditing. The end result being that they report back to the accountant who writes the final report.

This processes had turn Nigeria in to a large leaking pocket where engineering projects are over designed and valued. Most engineering based project have it details in the design and unraveling the inadequacies by one who is not in the profession is an impossible task.  As a developing country or do I say an under developed country, Nigeria is supposed to be a large and thriving construction site. The country rank among one of the few in the world where project cost do not conform to international benchmarking.
