Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, on Thursday reacted to the allegation with the aid of the Speaker, house of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, that he only disclosed the safety allocation within the price range and no longer “security votes”.
The governor, in a commentary by means of his special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Samuel Aruwan, stated the state did not function a equivalent system like the national assembly relating to safety votes.
The observation learn partially, “The Kaduna State executive has offered details of its security funds.
“What was once introduced represents the one security vote for the whole govt. because the figures exhibit, there’s no security vote for the Governor of Kaduna State.
“this can be a shock to those used to the belief of security votes as barely disguised slush cash, but we don’t function the sort of device in Kaduna.
“Our budgets specify what’s voted as assistance to safety agencies, and its expenditure is properly recorded and accounted for. These should not monies given to or spent by way of the governor.”
El-Rufai, on the other hand, stated if the leaders of the NASS had safety votes allocated to or personally amassed by using them, they may wish to expose such.
“Our safety spending does not function just like the NASS device of sharing public dollars in such an opaque type that even NASS individuals do not know how their complete budget is broken down or what the management gets as its ‘working costs.”
The motion of the governor followed the problem Dogara that the governors must make public their safety budgets and the way they disbursed local executive money.
The problem was once thrown as a response to Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s request to the national assembly to offer additional small print on the opaque N115bn 2016 NASS funds.
