Must read

The Senate Committee on Environment has disclosed that the sum of 16 billion naira debt owed by state governments was included in the Ministry of Environment’s 2022 budget to be serviced.

Chairman of the Committee and former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu disclosed this after he presented his budget to the appropriation committee, saying that the debt was owed by state governments and not the federal government.

Ekweremadu expressed dissatisfaction that similar money of about N6 billion was included in the 2021 budget, which his Committee had queried the Ministry of Environment in times past.

He described as unfortunate, the fact that another sum of N16 billion debt was included in the 2022 budget for the federal government of Nigeria to service.
