Why Are Computers Budgeted For Every Year? – Sen. Abaribe Attacks Buhari’s Budget.
A South-eastern senator has raised concerns about budgetary allocations made for the purchase of computers every year despite the fact that the technological device has a lengthy life-span.
Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe representing Abia-South Senatorial District in his contribution to the 2017 budget debate says the more things change the more they remain the same.
He described the budget as an outrageous. “We are nation that joke a lot, we are going in the wrong direction. N1.3b is too outrageous for catering equipment” he reiterated.
He said: “5 BMW cars, 5 Toyota Land Cruisers etc are outrageous”.
“Every year computers are being budgeted for in budgets.”
President Muhammadu Buhari’s previous “budget of change” in the year 2016 was severely padded by faceless government officials leading to a protracted furore in the National Assembly.
