House clamps down on MDAs for budget misappropriation.

The House of Representatives has mandated all its standing committees to within two weeks thoroughly investigate all ministries departments and agencies of government, to ascertain whether or not they engaged in diversion of budgeted funds.

During Thursday’s plenary, house members noted that between fourty to sixty percent of funds have been released to MDAs by the ministry of finance for the implementation of the 2021 appropriation act, but these funds are allegedly yet to be dispensed for purpose meant.

The committees are to liaise with the ministry of finance to ascertain level of releases and compliance with the 2021 appropriation act.

In another development, the house has re echoed the call from the senate urging the federal government to declare bandits and their sponsors as terrorists.
