Tinubu Dismisses Budget Padding Narration

President Bola Tinubu has dismissed allegations of budget padding, particularly the claim that the 2024 budget was padded by N3.7 trillion, made by Senator Abdul Ningi.

Speaking during a Ramadan Fast-breaking event with the leadership of the Senate at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, Tinubu criticized those making such claims, describing them as lacking an understanding of arithmetic.

He emphasized his administration’s commitment to fostering cooperation with the National Assembly for the country’s advancement, while also highlighting the importance of maintaining the integrity of the legislative body.

Tinubu expressed gratitude to the Senate for their collaboration since he assumed office, acknowledging their expeditious handling of the budget.

He urged for a focus on controlling expenditure and improving management practices to address challenges and emphasized that the country is on the brink of improvement, with revenue showing signs of improvement.

Additionally, Tinubu pledged to ensure that perpetrators of the recent killings of soldiers in Delta State face the full force of the law, affirming the government’s commitment to defending national sovereignty and eradicating poverty.
