|2018 Budget: Senate Rejects Dpr’s N355m Proposal For Foreign Trips by Mrsulay: 3:48pm On Dec 15, 2017|
The Senate Committee on Petroleum (Upstream)
on Thursday rejected the Department of
Petroleum Resources’ proposal of N355 million
for foreign trips in the 2018 fiscal year.
The committee rejected the proposal when the
officials of DPR appeared before it to defend the
Department’s 2018 budget.
The Chairman of the committee, Senator Tayo
Alasoadura, vowed that the committee would
reduce the estimates when sending it to plenary
Alasoadura said: “Your proposed figure for
foreign trips in the 2018 fiscal year is too high
and must be drastically reduced before it is
presented to the Senate for approval.
“Even the N60.2 million proposed for local trips
in terms of monitoring is also on the high side
and may also be reviewed downward.”
