LAWMAKERS DISAGREE WITH MIINISTRY OF HUMANITARIAN AFFAIRS DURING 2021 BUDGET.
Some lawmakers were worried about the extra-budgetary spending of the ministry and incomplete budget documents submitted by the Minister, Sadiya Umar Farouk.
“I don’t think that the document conclusively and comprehensively the challenges of our office. Engaging with these documents will mean that we are taking just a fraction of our responsibility,” a committee member, Awaji-Inombek Abiante, said.
Subsequently, voices were raised as the defense was going on and one of the lawmakers accused members of the committee of harassing the minister after which he stormed out of the meeting.
