N140M For Repairs Of 1-Year-Old Vehicles, N500M to Renovate NYSC Camp: Senate Queries FCT Minister over SURE-P Funds

The Senate’s Ad-hoc Committee on Subsidy Re-investment and Empowerment Programme (SURE-P) has asked FCT Minister Bala Mohammed to explain how SURE-P funds allocated to the territory from 2012 to date were spent.

The committee, which issued the query on Tuesday in Abuja at a meeting with the minister, urged him to furnish it with a detailed statement of account of the SURE-P funds.

The committee also asked minister to explain the rationale behind his alleged payment of N1 billion SURE-P funds into the Abuja Investment Fund, saying that there was no justification for such payments.

The minister was asked to provide details of how and why the FCT Administration (FCTA) spent N140 million to rehabilitate the buses which it bought in 2012.

Members of the committee insisted that the buses ought not to have been due for repairs one year after their purchase.

Besides, the committee queried the minister over the N500 million that was allegedly spent on the rehabilitation of the NYSC Orientation Camp in Kubwa.

“There is no evidence that the NYSC is lacking funds from the Federal Government,’’ the committee said
