Fashola’s budget didn’t pass fairness test – Namdas 

…says NASS Can’t watch budget skewed to one region 
By John Femi Adi: 
Chairman , House of Representatives Committee on Media and Publicity , Honourable Abdulrazak Namdas said the  proposal from Mr. President on the 2017 Budget of the Ministry of Works, Power and Housing did not pass fairness test.

Namdas also said the National Assembly has a responsibility  to ensure balance in the distribution of Road Projects and other developmental facilities.
Namdas in a statement said the lawmakers  cannot watch the national patrimony unfairly skewed to one region or a few regions to the detriment of other states and geo-political zones.

Read full statement: 
We need to remind Mr. Fashola that the National Assembly is a national institution made up of members from all geo-political zones, they represent all tendencies, interests and ethnic nationalities.
 It has a responsibility also to ensure balance in the distribution of Road Projects and other developmental facilities.
 It cannot watch our national patrimony unfairly skewed to one region or a few regions to the detriment of other states and geo-political zones.
 The proposal from Mr. President on the 2017 Budget of the Ministry of Works, Power and Housing did not pass this test! 
This partly informed the intervention of National Assembly so that every region can be carried along in project allocation-

 HON ABDULRAZAK NAMDAS, CHAIRMAN, HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES COMMITTEE ON MEDIA AND  PUBLICITY ON 24TH JUNE,2017
