48

The Senate on Tuesday rejected the report of its Committee on Drugs and Narcotics after it uncovered N4.5bn earmarked for the construction of police barrack in the 2022 budget proposal of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA). Presenting the report, the chairman of the committee, Senator Hezekiah Dimka, said his committee uncovered the anomaly in the course of scrutinising the budget document presented to it by the Ministry of Finance and quickly raised the alarm. The Committee on Appropriation, chaired by Senator Barau Jubrin, rejected the report on the NDLEA budget and asked the committee to go and correct the anomaly. The Senate Committee on Environment, chaired by Senator Ike Ekweremadu, had, on Monday, uncovered N16bn proposed in the 2022 Appropriation Bill for repayment of a loan for the execution of the Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management Project, NEWMAP. Ekweremadu said the loan was still covered by a 10-year moratorium expiring in 2023 He said the loan ought to be serviced by various state governments which utilised them, not the Federal Government
