The Adamawa State House of Assembly today (Tuesday) passed a resolution directing the state Commissioner for Finance to appear before it on Wednesday (tomorrow) to brief it on the utilization of the state N7.2 billion bailout fund.
The resolution came under “Matter of Urgent Public Importance” raised by the Hon. Abubakar Abdulrahman (APC-Mubi South)
Abdulrahman, who is chairman, House Committee on Appropriation, Budget and Finance, observed that in spite of an earlier resolution passed last week by the House directing the ministry of finance to furnish the House with the detailed framework use in disbursing the bailout money received from Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), the ministry was yet to response.
“The governor should direct the commissioner to come and explain the disbursement to the house within 24 hours”, Abdulrahman said.
Other members who contributed in plenary including Mallam Abubakar Atiku (APC-Uba/Gaya) and Mallam Aminu Aliyu (APC-Song) declared support for the summon to the commissioner to brief the House.
Speaking after the motion was passed unanimously in a voice vote, the Speaker, Kabiru Mijinyawa,, directed the Clerk of the House to communicate the summons to the commissioner to appear before the House on Wednesday.
