NATIONAL ASSEMBLY BUDGET PADDING SCANDAL
What do the modern woman and the Nigerian National Assembly have in common? Padding! News reports allege that members of the national assembly padded the 2016 budget to the tune of four hundred and eighty one billion Naira! And the federal government is not standing for it. Apparently the presidency is in moves to fish out and prosecute the offenders.
The imbroglio has left the key players Abdulmumin Jibrin and the Speaker of the house Yakubu Dogara, trading accusations and threats. It makes you wonder Is there anyone righteous left in the land? The battle is on. Who would be the casualties and who would be, if any, the defenders of the anti-corruption drive?
