This study used both primary data and secondary data, where questionnaire was used for data collection. Data collected was analyzed through SPSS version 21.

Descriptive statistics and correlation (using Karl persons coefficient of correlation) were used to analyze the data and establish the relationship between the independent variables and dependent variables. Stakeholders contribution, Stakeholders participation and Stakeholders communication contribute the project sustainability, where (R=0.953). This implies that Stakeholders contribution, Stakeholders participation and Stakeholders communication have positive contribution on Project sustainability. The sig value (0.000) less than the level significance (0.05). The F-statistics (F=214.145) is far greater than the P-value (0.000). Using linear regression analysis from SPSS data bases, shows that Stakeholders contribution, Stakeholders participation and Stakeholders communication were significant with (sig=0.000 and 0.01), this means that all variables influence the project sustainability. The conclusion drawn from the study is that stakeholders involvement in various forms promoted project sustainability.
