PDP warns NASS against approving Buhari’s budget without details

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP ) has
charged the National Assembly to ensure
that all the details of the 2020 budget
proposal were submitted to it and
thoroughly checked before legislative
approval is given .
National Chairman of the party, Prince
Uche Secondus , who gave the charge at
the inauguration of the party’s campaign
councils for Bayelsa and Kogi States in
Abuja , yesterday , stated that the 2020
Budget presented by President
Muhammadu Buhari was empty and was
sent without the budget estimates.
He charged members of the National
Assembly not to succumb to pressure
from the executive and pass the budget
without the estimates attached therein ,
adding that it is wrong for members of
the parliament to commence
deliberations on the budget without
being served with a copy of the details of
the budget estimates .

“ There is confusion all over the place;
confusion in the villa , confusion in the
other room even confusion in the
presentation of the budget . Of course ,
that budget is voodoo budget ; it ’ s empty.
They sent the budget without estimates ;
they should learn how to properly
present a budget . The National Assembly
cannot commence debate on a budget to
tied to any estimate ”
“ Of course , as far as we are concerned ,
they have already passed the budget
without estimates . As far as we are
concerned , APC has failed ,”

Secondus said.
The chairman further charged members
of the committees to realise that Kogi
and Bayelsa States are the strong holds of
the party and must ensure that PDP is
victorious at the polls.
In his acceptance Speech, the Chairman
of the Kogi State National Campaign
Council and Governor of Oyo State , Seyi
Makinde , assured that he will put
everything in place to ensure victory for
the party.
“ We will do you proud. The election in
Kogi and Bayelsa is another opportunity
to press the political reset button for the
country . It will start with this election
and culminate in the national election in
2023. When they are planning evil , we
shall run an election that will be
peaceful .
“ Like in Oyo , we won the heart of the
people. In the new PDP , we will do what
is right. I told former governor Ibrahim
Idris and Idris Wada that if they come
together, victory will be assured in Kogi
state .”
Also Speaking, Senator Bala Mohammed,
governor of Bauchi State , who is leading
the Bayelsa Campaign Council, said that
reconciliation is critical for victory in
Bayelsa .
“ Am taking this business with all the
responsibility it needs. If the other side is
planning evil , we shall plan good; if they
are planning failure, we shall plan good.
We shall usher in a new dawn in Bayelsa
State, ” Mohammed assured .
Also in his remarks, Senator Saraki
assured that all measures would be put
in place to ensure that all warring
factions in the party are reconciled .
“ The work to win Kogi and Bayelsa
begins and ends with reconciliation and
to show we are serious about the future
we need to reconcile because who ever
PDP picks is better than the man at the
other side. The reconciliation is the
foundation of victory , ” he stated.
