Honorable Minister of Information & Culture, Alh. Lai Mohammed appears before National Assembly, and House of Representatives Committee on Information, National Orientation, Ethics and Values to defend the Ministry’s Year 2021 Annual Budget.
The chairman House committee National Orientation, Ethics and Values, Hon. Odebunmi Olusegun, believe that this budgetary regime will contribute immensely to the development. Of our great country if the implementation is done with due diligence
“Although in response to my consistent request for better funding of this ministry and related agencies, there’s an improvement in the amount proposed for her and her agencies in the budget when compared with previous ones”
-Hon. Odebunmi Olusegun
On the other hand, the lack of enough financial allocation that is seriously hampering their performances still requires improvement. In fact, budget of Information ministries in states like Akwa-Ibom and Rivers is far more than what the whole country is proposing for
Federal Ministry of Information and Culture despite the very high responsibilities attached to the ministry. On that note, we agree that there is a need for more and better funding and that is what was advocated by chairman.
