Reps in rowdy session over Jonathan’s N98.4bn virement request
President Jonathan had proposed a bill to the House asking for the virement of N98.4billion in respect of nine ministries, agencies and departments in the 2011 budget last week.
Most members who contributed to the debate did not hide their displeasure at the failure of the Executive to provide enough information on the level of performances of the 2011 budget and were ready to kill the bill. House Leader, Mrs Mulikat Akande-Adeola, who opened debate on the general principles of the bill could not convince her colleagues on the desirability of the presidential request.
