No Security Vote Appropriated To Me - El-rufai Tells Dogara by deantimes(m): 5:14pm On Apr 13, 2017
THE Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-rufai says there is no security vote appropriated to him.

On Tuesday, Abdulrazak Namdas, spokesman of the house of representatives, said what el-Rufai published was the security budget of Kaduna and not his security votes.

But in a statement on Thursday, Samuel Aruwan, spokesman of the governor, said the state’s budget specified what was voted to security agencies and nothing was given to the governor.

He said the Kaduna’s security funding is not operated like the national assembly where everything is “opaque”.

Aruwan said if the leadership of the national assembly have security votes they should disclose what is allocated to them.

“The Kaduna state government has presented details of its security budget. What was presented represents the only security vote for the entire government,” he said.

“As the figures show, there is no security vote for the governor of Kaduna state. This may be a shock to those used to the notion of security votes as barely disguised slush funds, but we do not operate such a system in Kaduna.

“Our budgets specify what is voted as assistance to security agencies, and its expenditure is properly recorded and accounted for. These are not monies given to or spent by the governor.

“If the leaders of the NASS have security votes allocated to or personally collected by them, they might wish to disclose such. Our security spending does not operate like the NASS system of sharing public funds in such an opaque fashion that even NASS members do not know how their entire budget is broken down or what the leadership gets as its ‘running costs’.

“The figures in the pay slips presented for the Honourable Speaker are in stark contrast to the declaration by The Economist regarding the earnings of NASS members. One of the claims cannot be right.”

He said the demand of the budget of the national assembly to be public would not go away.

“However, notwithstanding the intemperate response of the spokesman of the house of representatives, the demand that the NASS budget be made public will not go away,” he further said.

“It is not personal, and there is a strong civic constituency that is demanding it. The sooner all of us in public life recognised that the game has changed, and that segments of civil society and indeed everyday citizens of Nigeria, are much more aware, astute and advanced than the state of our politics, the better for our democratic health.”

The governor’s spokesman said the people who leaked his memo to President Muhammadu Buhari should be blamed and should not be brought into the matter.

“The NASS leadership has been promising ad infinitum to publish the breakdown of the opaque, one-line budget. It should simply do so. Prompt release of the 2015 and 2016 breakdowns, along with the proposed figures for 2017, would be a good way to start,” it read.

“As things stand today, even if Mallam Nasir El-Rufai refrains from further commentary on this matter, the genie is already out of the bottle. The public will not accept a secretive NASS, or any other branch of government for that matter.”

This is beginning to sound like "I don't sign cheques"

[In addition]

As outlined in the thread below

https://www.nairaland.com/3734151/dogaras-challenge-el-rufai-presents-specifics

El-Rufai supposedly published SPECIFICS of the Kaduna State Security Vote in response to Dogara's challenge.

UNFORTUNATELY NO SUCH THING HAPPENED!!!!

In the release from El-Rufai the following claim is made

5.Details of actual spending in 2015 for security and indeed every line item in the State budgets are also publicly available via the annual report of the Accountant-General accessible on www.kdsg.gov.ng.

When you go to the link www.kdsg.gov.ng there is NO SUCH document!!!

When you search for words mentioned in the release like 'drone' and 'cctv' the search returns this result - "sorry, but nothing matched your search terms. Please try again with some different keywords).

The closest thing to what is described is the 2015 Audited Account of the State http://kdsg.gov.ng/kaduna-state-publishes-audited-accounts-for-y2015/ again there is NO SECURITY VOTE SPECIFICS or LINE ITEMS!!!!!

The speaker has since published his payslip knowing fully well that this tells only a quarter of the story! but since El-Rufai can get away with throwing up dust and propaganda why not try?

In all this, Nigeria and Nigerians loose out funny thing is they're too busy taking sides, hustling, watching BBN to pay attention.

The only set of people who have steadily and consistently grown fat (in consonance with their bank balances) since 1999 are these POLITICIANS!


You can FOOL all the people sometime and in Nigeria you can FOOL ALL the people ALL the time

Propaganda is successful when a populace is uneducated and unenlightened and the so called elite have cut their deals.


notice that the budget for education over successive governments has been relatively miniscule, this is no coincidence

I don't understand how some people think. El Rufai might be a lair but that doesn't make is questions invalid. NASS should break down their budget for all to see. I think that should be what everyone should be demanding for.

God can use a liar to expose people that are bleeding the nation dry. He is not asking this questions for himself but for me and you. Our senators are one of the highest paid in the world and we need to know what they use our money for.

So forget if he is a liar and focus on the most shady public servants in the country.

Stop attacking the message focus on his message.

God bless all patriotic Nigeria

God bless Nigeria

Fact : El Rufai publicly lied about the amount of money GEJ spent for independence celebrations in 2012 - 2013.

What other fact do you need that he is a liar?
