2022 Budget: Senate Committee Rejects Minister’s Presentation

The Senate Committee on Science and Technology on Monday rejected the budgetary presentation made to it by Minister of State, Science and Technology, Mohammed Hassan Abdullahi.

The rejection of the presentation by the Committee was as a result of irregularities and irreconcilable budget figures.

Angered by the development, the Chairman of the Committee, Uche Ekwunife ordered the minister and his entourage to go and tidy up the document for proper presentation.

“Your budget presentation was not synchronised. You gave us the document to confuse us.

“What kind of submission is this? Permanent Secretary, who prepared this submission? Ekunife fumed.

She, therefore, directed the embattled Minister to make a presentation on 2022 budget estimates for the ministry and be prepared to return Friday this week, for a re-presentation on 2021.

But the minister in his response urged the committee to allow the ministry to go and reconcile grey areas for a fresh presentation.

“Allow us to go back and do a fresh presentation,” Abdullahi said.
