House Of Representative is Broke – Reps Spokesman

By Damilola Adeyemo

ABUJA –  Benjamin Kalu, the House of Representatives spokesman, has said the House of Representative is broke.

In a statement, Kalu said “Yes, the house is broke,”

“I have said it before and I am saying it again and I am not afraid of saying it.

“This is the fact until Nigerians believe that the appropriation that was made for the running of the National Assembly, which was done when the exchange rate of naira to the dollar was 180 is less now than what it used to be.
“The dollar equivalent today has gone up to over N400, the purchasing power of the budget as it is now, is weaker than it was 10 years ago.”

“Why are you afraid to raise the budget of the National Assembly that will enable us to conduct our services efficiently and effectively.

“If you go to U.S., you see professors who are consulting and working directly with members of parliament.”
