- The members of the House of Representatives have opposed the N51.9 billion votes for the office of the secretary to the government of the federation
- The lawmakers kicked against the vote during the passage of the 2017 budget today, May 11
- Recall that the former SGF was suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari for alleged corrupt practices
The members of the House of Representatives on Thursday, May 11, opposed the N51.9 billion voted as recurrent expenditure for the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.
The lawmakers decision comes on the heels of the suspension of Babachir Lawal, the former secretary to the government of the federation.
At the presentation of the 2017 budget before the lower chamber, shouts of 'no! no!!' took over the floor of the House during the passage.
Recall that Lawal was suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari for his alleged involvement in a contract for humanitarian services in the North-East.
Lawal was alleged to have awarded a N500 million grass-cutting contract to a company he had interest in, an action which flouts the Public Service Act.
