How To Check Your Federal Constituency Budget Allocations (N1.3 Bill -Surulere1) by LRNZH(m): 5:46pm On Jun 09, 2018
There was a recent video of House of Reps Majority leader Honorable Femi Gbajabiamila surprising his wife, who was celebrating her 50th birthday, with a Mercedes Benz G-Wagon that had customized 'Assurance' licence plates.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMU20vFk51g

There was uproar by Nigerians as to the source of "Gbaja's" wealth, who claimed to have saved for it.
A week later, news broke of "Gbaja's" gift of motorcyles, tricyles and buses to his constituent members. https://www.vanguardngr.com/2018/06/empowerment-gbajabiamila-gives-30-buses-25-tricycles-160-motorcycles/

This prompted me to check and identify how much "Gbaja" gets to play with from his Surulere constituency allocation.
See list of Surulere1 Federal Constituency Budgetary allocation for 2017 below (totaling N1.3 Billion):

SURULERE 1 FEDERAL CONSTITUENCY 2017 BUDGETARY ALLOCATION

1. ICT EMPOWERMENT TRAINING AND SUPPLY OF TABS TO YOUTHS IN SURULERE 1 IN SURULERE 1, LAGOS STATE N200 million

2. MEDICAL OUTREACH FOR PEOPLE IN SURULERE 1, LAGOS STATE IN SURULERE 1, LAGOS STATE N100 million

3. EMPOWERMENT TRAINING FOR YOUTH ON HAND AND CRAFT SKILLS DEVELOPMENT FOR SELF-RELIANCE IN SURULERE 1, LAGOS STATE N100 million

4. STRATEGIC EMPOWERMENT FOR YOUTH ON AUTO-SPRAYING, VEHICLE WHEEL BALANCING AND ALIGNMENT, VULCANIZING WORK, WELDING AND FABRICATIONS WORK IN SURULERE 1, LAGOS STATE N100 million

5. STRATEGIC EMPOWERMENT FOR YOUTH ON AUTO-MECHANIC, AUTO-ELECTRICIANS, AUTOMATIVE-MECHATRONICS, AUTO BODY WORK (PANEL BEATING), SURULERE 1, LAGOS STATE N100 million

6. STRATEGIC EMPOWERMENT FOR WOMEN AND YOUTH ON AGRICULTURAL PRODUCE FOR SELF-RELIANCE AND EXPORT IN SURULERE 1, LAGOS STATE N100 million

7. SKILL ACQUISITION TRAINING IN FISH PRODUCTION AND FEEDS FOR WOMEN AND YOUTH IN SURULERE II FEDERAL CONSTITUENCY, LAGOS STATE N100 million

8. SUPPLY OF FIRE EXTINGUISHING BALLS FOR DISTRIBUTION TO MARKETS IN SURULERE 1, LAGOS STATE IN SURULERE 1, LAGOS STATE N300 million

9. SUPPLY OF SCHOOL KITS TO 10,000 SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS IN SURULERE 1, LAGOS STATE N100 million

10. EMPOWERMENT OF YOUTH AND WOMEN IN WARDS G2, G3, F1, F2, F3 OF SURULERE 1 IN PROCESSING OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS IN SURULERE 1, LAGOS STATE N50 million

11. EMPOWERMENT OF YOUTH AND WOMEN IN WARDS E, E1, G, G1 OF SURULERE 1 IN PROCESSING OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS N50 million

Many questions arise:
1. Why is "Gbaja" sharing buses, tricycles and motorcycles when they're not listed in his constituency projects?
2. Will anyone be bold enough o beat his chest and claim that "Gbaja" has spent up to 10% (N130 million) out of the N1.3 Billion allocated to Surulele1 constituency alone?

To all Nigerians, please go to BudgIT's Tracka website and check how much has been allocated to your Federal Constituency in 2017 alone. Otherwise, holding our lawmakers and other public officers accountable remains a tall task.
Be a Responsible Citizen.

N323 million constituency fund



Subtract

1. N70 million (for G-Wagon)
2. N148 million (estimated as cost of 160 Okada, 25 Keke Napep and 30 Chinese buses - See below)


"WHERE is the CHANGE?"


https://www.vanguardngr.com/2018/04/reps-received-n323m-constituency-projects-three-years-ahwinahwi/


Okada N170k x 160 = N27,200,000
Keke Napep N650k x 25 = N16,250,000
Chinese Buses N3.5m x 30 = N105,000,000

Total = N148,450,000

.

1.3 gini?? Our constitution institutionalises corruption. What is the constitution's/government effort in tracking these huge funds to know if it has been duly utilized? We shouldn't blame public office holders blindly. We should blame ourselves for letting such cavity to go unchecked over time.

When pmb said they are there doing nothing but wasting tax payers money which shld be meant for something good, a lot demanded for his resignation and they even call him many names.

Our legislators are thieves and they deserve no mercy from God.
Despite benefiting massively at our expense, they will still sponsor thugs, arm them to unleash terror on us and fools who have exchanged their destinies for cap, 4yrds of ankara, 5 rubbers of rice, vest and token will still be supporting them....
