Fraud smells @APC FG over N795m budget for website update

Members of the Federal House of Representatives on Friday berated the All Progressive Congress (APC)-led Federal Government over the N795 million purported budgeted for website update in the 2016 budget submitted by the presidency, reports ITRealms.

They also expressed dismay over the sum of N536m allocated  for cable linkage from drivers rest room and guest house to Aso Villa, describing these as fraud.

The federal lawmakers also urgently requsted President Mohammadu Buhari to apologise to Nigerians over the unnecessary controversy that trailed the 2016 Appropriation Bill and subsequent disappearance of same, from the National Assembly.

One of the key Federal legislators who stood out in contribution on this debate at the floor of the house and monitored by correspondent included Hon. Johnson Agbonayinma of Egor, Ikpoba, Okha Federal Constituency of Edo State, who said he did not see the first budget that was laid before the House on 22nd December, 2015 by the President, insisting he has the right to know the contents of the first and the second documents.

Agbonayinma insisted it is a “monumental fraud” for the President, who was talking about cutting cost of governance, to earmark the alarming sum of estimated N800m, just for website update in the Villa.

Equally, he expressed dismay over the allocation of N322m to link cable from the drivers’ rest room within the Villa and another N213m to link yet another cable from the Guest House to the General House.
