NGO calls for suspension of constituency projects


Our Reporter

The Network for Best Practice and Integrity in Leadership (NEBPRIL) has told the National Assembly to lead a patriotic initiative, hinged on fiscal discipline, prudent budgeting, and reinvigorate its oversight functions, to put Nigeria on the path of speedy post-COVID-19 economic recovery.

This initiative, the Civil Society Organisation (CSO), said includes suspension of constituency projects for one year; strengthening oversight mechanisms to ensure blockage of avenues of wastage; application of NASS legislative powers on budgeting to redirect subsidy removal savings, to invest in healthcare and education e-learning infrastructure and capacity-building; the two sectors the pandemic has exposed grave inadequacies and pathetic fragility.
