NATIONAL ASSEMBLY PROBES 462 MILLION DOLLAR FUND FOR MILITARY CHOPPER PURCHASE

The National Assembly has begun probe into the extra budgetary withdrawal of 462 million dollars from the consolidated revenue fund for the purchase of helicopter from an American firm without recourse to the National Assembly for approval.

While the Senate has also summoned the Minister of Defence, Brigadier-General Mansur Dan-Ali, (retd) and his counterpart in the Finance Ministry, Kemi Adeosun, to appear before its Committee on Appropriations led by Senator Danjuma Goje, APC, Gombe Central, the House of Representatives mandated its committees on Finance and Ethics and Privileges to investigate the issue.

The Senate committee was, however, given one week to carry out a holistic investigation and report back at plenary.
