2019!!! Bukola Saraki’s Senate Approves One Of President Buhari’s Requests, Dumps The Other In The Dirty Gutters

The Senate, has approved N234.5 billion for the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, ahead of the 2019 general elections.

The Senate, however, refused to approve the budget for Security Agencies, as requested by President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday.

It added N45.5 billion to the the initial N189 billion approved by the Senate Committee on INEC.

This brings the total amount approved for the Electoral Commission to N234,507,272,393.

The approval was made after the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Appropriation, Danjuma Goje, presented a report following his Committee’s consideration of Buhari’s letter.

The President had written to the Senate, on Wednesday, requesting that the National Assembly approves N242 billion (242,445,322,600), as requested by INEC and Security Agencies, for the 2019 elections.

He stated that the entire sum of N242 billion be taken from other subheads in the 2018 Appropriation Act.

His recent letter differed from the letter he wrote to the Senate, in July, where he asked that of the total sum, N164 billion (N164,104,792,065), will be drawn from the 2018 budget, while N78 billion (N78,314,530,535), will form part of the 2019 budget of these Agencies.
