I’m Being Sidelined In My Constituency, Kingibe Cries Out

Senator Ireti Kingibe, who represents the Federal Capital Territory, has again cried out that she is being marginalised in the Senate Committee on issues concerning her constituency.

Kingibe made this known at the Plenary on Tuesday during the consideration of the 2024 N98.5bn Supplementary budget of the FCT.

Kingibe, coming under 10 and 11, stated that she is the highest elected person in the FCT, but she is, however, not carried along in the issues of the state.

Kindibe said, “Mr President, I am the highest elected person in the FCT with over four million people.

“I am not usually carried along in the issues that pertain to the FCT, especially the matters of budget.

“The FCT supplementary budget is presented today but I am not even aware of the whole procedure, I was not invited to any meeting where the budget was discussed.”

Kingibe was, however, interrupted by the Senate President, GodsWill Akpabio, when he requested for her the motion.

Akpabio told her that the order she moved demanded that she present a motion and present it to the House.

The senators agreed that Kingibe would present the complaint in a motion tomorrow.

President Bola Tinubu had last week written to the Senate seeking a supplementary bill of N98.5bn for the Federal Capital Territory Administration.

The N98.5bn is in addition to the N1.2tn budget passed in March by the National Assembly.
