Speaking at the convocation ceremony of the University of Benin/ National Institute for Legislative and Democratic Studies (UNIBEN/ NILDS) Postgraduate Programmes, he said “Today Nigeria is faced with the problem of availability of revenue. ”
“The time has come for National Assembly to continuously engage with revenue-generating agencies. We have to take the bull by the horn and look for our revenue wherever they are,” he added.
Information Nigeria recalls that only a few weeks ago, the National Assembly has budgeted N5 billion to purchase “official vehicles” for members of the Senate and House of Representatives.
