In Nigeria, there’s a big argument happening in the Senate. The reason? A claim that the 2024 budget was increased by N3 trillion more than it should have been.

The Heated Debate

The argument started because of a motion by Solomon Adeola, a senator from Ogun West. He said he felt his rights as a senator were ignored.

The Start of the Controversy

  • The Accusation: Abdul Ningi, a senator from Bauchi Central, started this whole thing. He said that the budget had been messed up in a big way, hurting the whole country.
  • The Budget Numbers: The National Assembly had approved a budget of N28.7 trillion for 2024.
  • The Increase: President Bola Tinubu originally proposed N27.5 trillion, but the lawmakers added N1.2 trillion more.

Why Adeola Is Upset

Adeola is upset because he helped make the budget. He said that Ningi’s claim that N3 trillion in the budget wasn’t for anything specific made him look bad.

Ningi’s Defense

Ningi said he had proof to back up his claim about the budget.

Chaos in the Senate

Things got even more heated when Jarigbe Jarigbe, a senator from Cross River North, claimed that some older senators got N500 million in the budget for their projects. He asked if anyone saw him talking about this in the media.

Conclusion

This argument in the Nigerian Senate over the 2024 budget is a big deal. It’s about a lot of money and whether it’s being used right. Everyone’s waiting to see what comes out of this clash.
