Senate Affirms No Budget Padding in 2024 Appropriation


In a recent statement, Senator Yemi Adaramodu, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Media and Publicity, addressed concerns regarding the 2024 National Budget, firmly stating that there is no budget padding within the Senate or the National Assembly.

Adaramodu emphasized that the National Budget is a public document, transparently outlining both expected revenue and expenditure for the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He asserted that the Senate, led by Senator Godswill Akpabio, is not aware of any deviations from the approved appropriation mandate for 2024.

Furthermore, Adaramodu highlighted that the budget presentation and approval processes were conducted in the public eye, with the Presidential assent also taking place in a public ceremony. He reassured the public that any infractions would have been brought before the Senate for scrutiny.

“We are confident that the 2024 appropriation law shall be strictly executed, under strict legislative oversight,” Adaramodu affirmed, urging the general public to rest assured that there is no budget padding occurring within the government’s fiscal operations.
