People’s Democratic Party in the House of Representatives faults the N10.33 trillion 2020 budget


The People’s Democratic Party (PDP)-led opposition in the House of Representatives yesterday, faulted the N10.33 trillion 2020 budget, insisting on thorough legislative scrutiny of the estimates, to ensure they reflect the wishes of over 200 million Nigerians.

Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Hon. Ndudi Elumelu (Delta-PDP), in a statement, said though the House had resolved to pass the budget before the end of the year, the details, particularly the capital expenditure items and implementation modules must meet the yearning of Nigerians before the budget is passed into law.

The Minority Leader stressed that Nigerians were depending on them, to protect their interest in critical issues that directly affects their lives, particularly on budget planning and implementation in key sectors.

The opposition caucus assured that the details of the N2.46 trillion capital budget, must be dissected and adjusted accordingly, to ensure that critical needs of Nigerians are adequately accommodated, as well as to plug waste and eliminate budgetary corruption at every stage.
