Exposed! Exact Millions Your Reps Member Collects For Constituency Projects

Published

on

The member representing Numan/Demsa/Lamurde constituency of Adamawa State in the House of Representatives, Kwamoti Laori, has revealed that each Reps member gets an allocation of N100m to execute projects in their constituencies.

The lawmaker, who made this revelation while addressing journalists in Yola at the weekend, regretted that due to poor budgetary implementation, the Reps hardly get more than N80m of the allocated N100m.

Naija News reports that he blamed poor budget implementation for the country’s poor economic growth.

“In terms of the money, every member of the House of Representatives is given an envelope of N100m. This money is used to execute the popular constituency intervention project,” Laori said.

He then explained that, “when you go into our core mandates, we are not supposed to be involved in infrastructures and provision of basic necessities to our constituents.

“But because of the lacuna of poor budgeting procedure, which has failed in tying policy plans to needs assessment, we have to step in and fill in the gaps that government has left open in terms of service delivery to our constituents.”

The Rep asserted that Nigeria has never achieved more than 40 per cent budget performance, lamenting that “budgets are enacted year-in and year-out, being repeated and bloated and yet not being achieved. Because of our projections we don’t follow them. We bloat the system and we don’t prioritise.”
