The House of Representatives Committee on Aviation led by Hon. Nnolim Nnaji on Thursday refused to hold a budget session with the Minister of Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika and heads of the sector’s agencies.
The infuriated lawmakers said they will not treat their budget, because they failed to present their 2021 proposals ahead of the scheduled date for defence.
Ministries and heads of agencies are customarily required to lay their proposals, days before the scheduled dates for defences.
The Chairman, Hon. Nnaji in his opening remarks at the scheduled budget meeting with the Minister and the Chief executives of the agencies, frowned at the failure of the Ministry to forward the documents as earlier request by the Committee.
