Reactions have trailed reports which suggest that the ministry of information is to spend about N661 million on refreshment and traveling expenses within the course of 2017.
Critics have said that the proposed spending plan is not in line with the Federal Government's promise to block leakages, as to aid quick recovery of the country from the economic recession.
The amount is part of the N49,464,302,080billion allocated to the ministry from the N7.3 trillion appropriation bill for 2017currently before the National Assembly.
