The Senate resolved on Tuesday to investigate the N30 trillion Ways and Means spent by former President Muhammadu Buhari’s Federal Government, which it claims was carelessly squandered.


It further argued that reckless spending of the overdraft obtained from the Central Bank of Nigeria under Godwin Emefiele was largely responsible for the country’s current food and security challenges.


The Red Chamber then voted to establish up an ad-hoc committee to conduct out a probe on what the N30 trillion Ways and Means were spent on by the immediate prior government, as details of such spending were not made available to the National Assembly.


The ad-hoc committee which will be constituted on Wednesday, will also probe the N10tn expended on the Anchor Borrowers Scheme, the $2.4bn forex transaction out of $7bn obligation made for that purpose as well as other intervention programmes.


Senate’s resolutions on planned investigations followed consideration of report of its joint Committee on Banking, Insurance and other Financial Institutions, Finance, National Planning, Agriculture and Appropriation on State of the Economy after interactive sessions with the Federal Government’s economic management team.


The report consideration in plenary on Tuesday, was stormy with accusations and counter accusations by senators on why and how the N22.7tn Ways and Means was passed by the 9th Senate in May 2023 and additional N7.2tn passed on December 30, 2023 by the 10th Senate.


Specifically , the Whip of the Senate , Senator Ali Ndume (APC Borno South), in his contribution , blamed the Senate for approving the request without details from Buhari.


Ndume said, “When the N22.7trillion Ways and Means approval request was brought before the 9th Senate, I insisted that details of spendings made with it , should be provided before approval but the Senate then went ahead and approve it .”


However, the Deputy Senate President, Jibrin Barau, said the decision taken then was a collective one with caveat that the executive should provide details later, which was however not provided .


In his defence, the former Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, claimed that the Ways and Means was in the past and urged the Senate to focus on the present.


Lawan said, “ All of those is in the past, we must focus on the present which is the fact that people are hungry and they are crying. That’s what we should focus on.”


The Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, in his remarks said, as recommended by the committee , and supported by most of the Senators, thorough probe must be carried out on the N22.7tn Ways and Means approved in May 2023 by the 9th Senate which later increased to N30tn , with passage of the N7.2trillion accrued interest forwarded for passage in the December last year .


Akpabio said, “The food and security crises confronting the nation now are traceable to the way and manner the said Ways and Means was given, collected and spent .


“Details of such spendings must be submitted for required scrutiny and possible remedies because what Nigerians want now is food on their table which must be given.”


He added, ” Other recommendations made by the committee on the need for thorough investigation of the N10trillion Anchor Borrowers programme, and other intervention programmes running into billions of dollars must be investigated.


“But as rightly recommended by the joint committee, security agencies should as a matter of national urgency combat all forms of insecurity across the country for farmers to access their farms for required food production.”


 

 

The federal government, FG, has revealled plans to reopen the borders to encourage the importation of cement and other commodities if the manufacturers refuse to reduce the prices.


The minister of Housing and Development, Arc Ahmed Dangiwa, stated this in Abuja on Tuesday.


Dangiwa stated that key input materials for cement production such as limestone, clay, silica sand, and gypsum sourced within our borders, should not be dollar-rated.


The minister said the border was closed to the importation of cement to help local manufacturers “but if the government decides to open it back for mass importation, prices of cement would crash and local manufacturers would be gravely affected”.


Dangiwa who called on the manufacturers to be more patriotic said BUA cement for instance “has been willing and is still willing as at the last time he spoke with them to crash the price of their cement, lower than the N7000, N8000 agreed by the manufactures” and he sees no reason why the others cannot do the same.


“The challenges you speak of, many countries are facing the same challenges and some even worse than that but as patriotic citizens, we have to rally around whenever there is a crisis to change the situation.


“The gas price you spoke of, we know that we produce gas in the country the only thing you can say is that maybe it is not enough. Even if you say about 50 percent of your production cost is spent on gas prices, we still produce gas in Nigeria it’s just that some of the manufacturers take advantage of the situation. As for the mining equipment that you mentioned, you buy equipment and it takes years and you are still using it.


“The time you bought it maybe it was at a lower price but because now the dollar is high you are using it as an excuse. Honestly, we have to sit down and look at this critically. The demand and supply should be good for you because the government stopped the importation of cement, they stopped the importation in order to empower you to produce more.


“Otherwise if the government opens the border for mass importation of cement, the price would crash but you would have no business to do and at the same time the employment generation would go down. So these are the kinds of things you have to look at, the efforts of government in ensuring things go well.”

I laugh not at your pains and I know there’s a lot of hardship right now. The fact that I supported a different candidate from you isn’t to spite you, but out of my belief that my candidate will achieve a better Nigeria. I am here with you in Nigeria, and I am not alien to your angers, which is justified. I swear I truly feel your pain, but I am optimistic. I can’t abandon a government that I voted for. I can only join them to bring relief to Nigerians.

I am currently in Abuja, and I am talking with some people in the government. My efforts might not mean much to you now, but I am praying it brings hope to your hearts again. The cost of governance will reduce, minimum wage will increase, and food affordability will improve.

I supported ASIWAJU BOLA AHMED TINUBU, not against you, but for YOU. I am not begging you to stop the abuse. I made my choice, and I stand by it. We shall overcome as a people and come out a GREATER NATION.”
