Budget padded 10x to N206bn

The minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq has blamed the Finance Minster, Zainab Ahmed for padding N206bn to the 2023 budget of her ministry!

This incident occured during the 2023 budget defense for the ministry at the National Assembly.

Farouq, claimed that year 2022 funds budgeted for some projects in her ministry for the North East Development Commission and National Social Safety Net Project were not released, but now surprisingly inflated in the 2023 budget of the ministry.

This development shocked the committee members and Senator Elisha Abbo who spoke on the seriousness of the revelation.

Recall that Nigerians have been appalled by the scandalous spending and comments from the Humanitarian Affairs Minister.

During the Covid-19 shutdown when school children were at home, Farouq claimed to have expended billions of Naira to feed “absent” kids!
She recently claimed that Jigawa State which is up in the Northern region was more impacted by floods than Bayelsa State, which straddles the major rivers and Atlantic ocean!
