The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster and Social Development, Hajia Sa’adiya Umar Faruq, was turned back from defending 2020 budget by the joint senate committee on poverty alleviation.

The committee’s action, according to the chairman, Sen. Lawan Yahaya Gumau, was for the failure of the ministry to provide the committee with the 2019 budget forward presentation.

Gumau, said the committee will no longer tolerate the rude behavior of the two Special Advisers to the President that accompanied the Minister for the defense.

He says   the 2019 budget must be presented before 2020.

He call on the minister, that all the budget’s documents must be available to the committee on the appointed date.

In her response, the minister apologized to the committee for not providing the hard copy of the 2019 budget. But saying the hard copy of the 2020 budget submitted earlier was attached with a flash drive that contains the 2019 budget, she said.
