The Chairman of the Northern Senators’ Forum and senator representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District, Abdul Ningi, has expressed disappointment at the unprecedented twist that trailed his comments on the 2024 Appropriation Act.


In a chat with newsmen, Ningi claimed he never suggested that President Bola Tinubu is implementing two budgets or that he was biased against the North, insisting that it has been established beyond doubt that N25trn was rightly allocated in the budget, citing three parameters (money, project and location) but cannot ascertain the project location for the other N3trn.


Recall the Presidency through his Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga, had on Sunday described as false, the claims by Senator Ningi that the Federal Government is operating two versions of the 2024 budget.


Meanwhile, a lawmaker from Ondo South Senatorial District, Jimoh Ibrahim, has asked the Federal Government to charge Senator Ningi to court for criminal misinformation and breach of peace in the National Assembly and the country by extension.
