Senate Kicks As Buhari Submits NDDC’s Budget by ahmedkoded95(m): 12:23pm On Nov 26, 2019
There was drama on Tuesday following the presentation of the 2019/2020 budget of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) to the Senate by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Senate President Ahmad Lawan read President Buhari’s letter during plenary.

However, Minority Leader of the Senate, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, coming under order 43 of the Senate Standing Orders on personal explanation, drew the Senate’s attention to the fact that the members of the governing board of the agency recently cleared by the Senate are yet to be sworn-in.

Abaribe wondered who will appear before the relevant committees of the Senate to defend the proposals.

Abaribe said: “We just heard from you (Senate President) the communication from Mr President which relates to the presentation of the NDDC’s Budget for approval.

“Of course, what it will mean is that the budget will go to the relevant committee of Appropriation and the NDDC Committee and some persons will come to defend the budget.

“Having regard to the fact that this Senate has confirmed members of the board of the NDDC and they are yet to resume office, Mr. President I fear that we may run into a problem of delayed budget again since nobody will come to defend this budget.

“Because this August body having confirmed the board of NDDC, will not countenance any illegal contraption coming in front of us to say they are representing the NDDC.

“I know that this may be preemptive, but my people say that if we act quick we will prevent disaster from coming.

“So, to prevent a delayed budget for the NDDC, that is helping the region for development, it would be better for us to prevent this issue from coming and let the needful be done.”

Lawan sustained Abaribe’s point of order and urged the executive to do the right thing so that the right persons can come and defend the NDDC’s Budget.

Lawan said: “Thank you Minority Leader but because you have come under order 43, this motion is not subject to debate but let me sustain your point of order.

“As far as we are concerned this Senate knows that we have confirmed the request of Mr. President for the board membership of the NDDC and we have communicated that and the next logical thing to do by law is for the appointments of the members of the board to take immediate effect.

“I believe that the executive arm of government will attend to that quickly so that we have the right people to come and defend the Appropriation request of Mr. President.”

Senate didn't kick anything, the rubber stamp senate will do whatever the executive orders them to do. We currently have no senate nor judiciary. Ahmed Lawan and illegal CJN Tanko Mohamed are under Buhari's armpits

Should we call this an oversight, laziness or corruption

I still don't understand how someone can call himself a president, employed a crowd of aids and still make such costly mistake undecided

So if Abaribe had not spoken, Lawan would have just stamped grin grin grin grin

O di kwa risky!!!

This Abaribe get sense. I like am.

I have watched him talk in the senate few times, he seems to be well learned and widely knowledgable. One of the best men in the senate opposition.

In view of the fact that there is no real infrastructural, social and economic impact from the budget and activities of NDDC since inception, any delay in passing the recently-submitted budget will be a welcome development. While the delay is on, FG should commence the long-expected forensic audit of the budgets and activities of NDDC over the years.

No amount of arm-twisting by senators and reps from Niger Delta region should cow the presidency. This is because these ND legislators have been the major problem of NDDC through deliberate poor oversight functions and indirect involvement in handling contracts via fronts. This is the reason why they are not worried about thousands of abandoned projects scattered all over the region and billions of Naira spent on them over the years.

Unfortunately, the majority of incoming NDDC Board members are also nominees of these selfishly corrupt politicians, which nicely sets up the stage another round of looting. Shame on them!
