House of Representatives Show How Okonjo Iweala Lied to Nigerians on 2012 Budget Implementation

The House of Representatives has called the Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, a liar, concerning her claims on the 2012 budget implementation which she claimed has been achieved up to 56%. Spokesperson of the house, Zakari Mohammed, made this clear on Wednesday in Abuja when he said that “It is very clear already that she (Okonjo-Iweala) lied; she has lied to Nigerians.”

Documents submitted to the Senate by the Ministry of Finance on Tuesday indicated that performance of the budget as of July was a mere 12.6 per cent. This is contrary to claims by the finance minister that the budget had recorded 56 per cent implementation; it is even far lower than the 34 per cent performance the House had scored the budget.

Zakari Mohammed continues: “The minister should just go and make the appropriate adjustments. It is very clear already that she lied; she has lied to Nigerians,”

The documents before the Senate now reveal that though N324.5bn (34 per cent) was cash-backed last month, only N184.84bn (12.6 per cent) was really available to Ministries Departments and Agencies of government for capital projects as at July 20.

  • What kind of nonsense comments are these? But history has shown that powerful women are most promiscious example cleopatra of egypt, jezebel, marylin monroe, magret thatcher etc because it is believed they work very hard and as such indulge in sex more as a means of reducing tension that said I am also interested in tasting the soup in case anybody has her number.

  • What a man can do, a woman can do worst. Okonjo’s deception at this time in d nation rather is killing. I wonder whose interest she represents as our minister (Nigerians or internationals). Kindly note that ur economic pills ar healing no pains! Nigeria Must Survive! Cut down all excessive spendings from Presidency to ur ministry to finance budget rather than borrow! Enough is enough!

  • I’m greatly disappointed by the lewd comments posted by Emeka, Agu n Niyi. We are talking serious economic mess here and you gigolos are vomitting bile here. Please, leave this blog. Nigeria is undergoing a really rough time and must find a solution before the country ends up in flames.
