The Chairman, House Committee on Appropriations, Muktar Betara has summoned the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Sadiya Umar Farouk, for the ongoing budget defence or the House will be forced to take decisive action.

The Chairman noted that the minister has consistently refused to appear at the House of Representatives to defend the 2022 Budget of her ministry.

The Committee was said to have repeatedly invited the Minister for the budget defence exercise, but she would not honour the invitation.

He said “Sadiya Farouq, rather than appear before the Committee, kept delegating the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Nura Alkali, to do this function.

“Alkali had made herself available but the committee was uncomfortable with the Minister’s behaviours, making it to reject the Permanent Secretary’s appearance.”

The Committee is insisting that the Minister, who superintends the spendings in the ministry, comes forward to account for her office and not the Permanent Secretary.

Betara, when asked reasons for the summons, said he would never approve the PS to defend the budget.

He insisted that Sadiya Farouq must be at the Committee seating in person to defend her ministry’s budget.

The Minister had overseen huge spendings of national funds on palliative in the 2020 and 2021 budgets and the Committee would want her to account for them.
