NASS committee adopts N143bn INEC budget

The National Assembly Joint Committee on INEC has adopted the request of President Mohammadu Buhari for the approval of N143 billion for the Independent National  Electoral Commission INEC for the 2019 General election.

The resolution of the committee was taken after it rose from an executive session where it deliberated on the issue.

The Chairman of the committee, Senator Sulieman Nasif Representing Bauchi North urged INEC to re-present the budget to the National Assembly

This puts to rest the disagreement on the matter by lawmakers who were divided along party lines on whether to approve the 1N43 billion requested by President Buhari or the N189 billion requested by the electoral body.
