Senate President, Ahmed Lawan Reveals Why Federal Govt Is Borrowing To Finance Budgets
Lawan stated this through his special assistant (press), Ezrel Tabiowo, who represented him at the third University of Benin/National Institute for legislative and Democratic Studies (NILDS) convocation ceremony. He said:
“Today, Nigeria is challenged by the unavailability of revenues. We can pass the budget in record time, but when it comes to implementation, that becomes subject to how much revenue we are able to realize.
“The time has come for the national assembly to continuously engage revenue generating agencies to know what their challenges are. Where they have targets, we must ensure they meet these targets. Where they don’t meet them, we should find out why.”
He was reacting to a call by Senator Rochas Okorocha, who had advocated for the scrapping of the House of Representatives to reduce the cost of governance in the country.
