Presidency Orders Probe of Constituency Projects Done by National Assembly in the past 10 years

nassThe presidency might have ordered a probe into the constituency projects done by the legislative arm of government in the past 10 years. This is fallout of the dragging disagreement between the Presidency and the national Assembly over the 2013 budget.

It has been revealed that the Presidency has issued a directive that records of all National Assembly constituency projects done in the last 10 years be compiled produced it within one month.

According to the Tribune’s sources, “They have directed us to compile all the constituency projects done by the National Assembly in the last 10 years and forward the report to the presidency. We are to visit the site of the projects and see physically what has been done so far and report back within one month… We were not told the purpose of the assignment, but we gathered that they (government) are actually interested in what happened in the last 10 years,” the source said.

It will be recalled that there have been controversy between the two arms of government over the money budgeted for the constituency projects by the National Assembly in the 2013 budget. This development led to the delay in signing the budget by President Goodluck Jonathan.
