House Of Rep Members Lament Inadequacy In National Assembly Budget



The House of Representatives has expressed concern about the National Assembly budget’s inadequacy.

According to Benjamin Kalu, spokesman for the House of Representatives, the National Assembly cannot function effectively with a small budget.

Kalu made the announcement at the House of Representatives Press Corps’ end-of-year award ceremony in Abuja over the weekend, where he was named the Most Outstanding Spokesman of the House.

Kalu praised the Press Corps for its efforts to improve democracy.

He stated that the corps has given the National Assembly’s image stability.

He also said journalists were not getting what they deserved and more should be done to take care of them.

According to Kalu: “The budget of the National Assembly is low. We cannot function as expected by the mandate of the Constitution relying on that budget. People can criticize it the way they want.

“I have said it from the day I came [in]to the National Assembly, you cannot get the efficiency that we want to drive the legislature by depending on the current budget as it is. I am hoping that we would push it forward to accommodate other responsibilities of ours.”
