National Assembly Members Fail To Provide Documents Of How N2.5billion Running Cost In Six Months Were Spent


The House of Representatives, the lower chamber of the National Assembly, has failed to produce documents to prove how its members spent N2.5billion running costs paid to them for six months in 2019.

The Office of the Auditor-General of the Federation in its 2019 audit report, released in September 2021 and obtained by SaharaReporters, queried the Clerk of the house for failing to provide the documents and ordered it to refund the N2.5billion as there were risks of “diversion of public funds” by the lawmakers.
