Reps summon Fashola over comments on 2017 budget

The House of Representatives on Tuesday summoned the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, to appear before its adhoc committee and defend comments he reportedly made on the 2017 budget.
The committee is headed by Hon. Aliyu Madaki (APC Kano).
The minister is expected to explain the rationale behind the comments and “why he is inciting Nigerians against the National Assembly.”
The House decision was sequel to a motion brought under privilege by one Sadiq Abubarkar and passed by majority votes.

Fashola had claimed recently that one of the spokesmen of the National Assembly did not have a grasp of issues relating to the 2017 budget.
“This showed very stark and worrisome gaps in knowledge of the spokesperson about the budget process he was addressing,’’ the minister said.
The date for the hearing has not been announced.
