N3.7trn Budget Padding: Senate Wants To Arrest, Silence Me — Ningi


Senator Abdul Ningi has alleged that the Senate is making attempts to arrest ans silence him over his allegation of padding the 2024 budget to the tune of N3.7 trillion.

Ningi disclosed this when he appeared in an interview on Arise Television.

The Senate suspended Ningi on Tuesday for three months for insisting that projects worth N3.7 trillion in the 2024 budget were untraceable.

According to Ningi, no one could control the can of worms he had opened.

He said, “That is why I said I know this parliament very well, I have come a long way. And that is why we are speaking. Let’s speak.

“Have they ever asked me since the beginning of this so-called crisis, where are your findings? Where are the documents? I’m not using my head to come up with figures.

“Nobody has talked to me about evidence. Nobody has suggested even listening to me. All they are trying to do is to ensure that ‘how do we make sure that Ningi is silenced or arrested so that he doesn’t do anything?’

“I have opened this can of worms. Neither they nor I will be able to control it.”
