Niger Delta Communities In Rivers State Shut Down Shell’s Oil Flow-Station / Court orders inquiry into demolition of Patience Jonathan’s property / Senate President Bukola Saraki Sacks 98 Aides: Report /
Member of the Federal House of Representatives, James Faleke has said that the delay in the passage of the 2017 budget was to avoid padding.
He made this disclosure to Journalists at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, after meeting with All Progressives Congress (APC) stakeholders from Kogi.
He said: “Budget process takes some time, unlike what we had before where you talk about budget padding or no padding. What the national assembly tried to do this time is to do the needful once and for all with the budget details being submitted.
“The budget is ready, only to be considered on the floor as all committees have finished their work, probably this week. It is not about delay but doing the right things; if we hurriedly do it and get things wrong, Nigerians will condemn us.”
Faleke further stated that, “It is true that this government will be two years by May 29. I can tell you sincerely that the country has moved forward from what we used to have.
“We have done a lot in terms of re-organising our income, especially with regards to what the federal government gets as revenue.
“You cannot imagine how much has been recovered from individuals. If the looting had continued, this country would have collapsed and I want to give kudos to the president for having done that”.
