JUST IN: Nat’l Assembly Rejects Judiciary Budget, Gives Minister 24Hrs To Make Appearance



The National Assembly (NASS) joint committee of the Senate and House of Representatives has rejected the proposed budget for the Nigerian judiciary.

The committee on Wednesday expressed outrage over the “grossly inadequate” allocation, citing its detrimental impact on the judiciary’s ability to function effectively.

According to the lawmakers, the current budget falls short of the resources needed to ensure fair, efficient, and timely delivery of justice.

Furthermore, the joint committee issued an ultimatum to the Minister of National Planning and the Director-General of the Budget Office. Both individuals have been summoned to appear before the committee within 24 hours to explain and justify the budget allocation.
