The Honourable member representing Burutu Federal Constituency of Edo State at the Federal House of Representatives, Mr. Julius Pondi has said the budget would not be realistic, especially given the alleged fraudulent allocations quoted in the 2016 appropriation bill, reports NaijaAgroNet.
He cited for instance the allocation of N4bn to the maintenance of Aso Rock clinic, arguing that it does not make sense to vote such amount on Aso Rock clinic when at every little ailment those the clinic are meant for will be on their way for medical tourism.
NaijaAgroNet gathered that the sum of N3,889,015bn was initially budgeted for purchase of vehicles in the first budget, but this was changed downwards to N340m in the corrected version, while N3,914,197,062bn, which was not in the first budget document was now accommodated for purported annual maintenance of Villa facilities.
