President Buhari Seeks Approval For N147bn Refund To Ondo, 4 Other States
President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the National Assembly to approve the refund of N148 billion to Ondo, Bayelsa, Cross River, Osun and Rivers States for federal road projects the five states executed.
The president made this known in a letter on Tuesday sent to the speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, and read on the floor of the house.
From the breakdown, Ondo State, where the governorship election will hold next week, is to receive N7 billion.
The approval was criticised by opposition lawmakers who asked that the approval be delayed untill after the election.
They were, however, outvoted by majority senators.
