senator representing Bauchi south senatorial district, Senator Ali Wakili has, over the weekend, distributed 1, 800 bags of fertilizer to the chieftains of the ruling party All Progressives Congress, APC, and his campaign coordinators who played vital roles towards his victory in the last 2015 election.
Presenting the donation at his residence, Senator Wakili who is also the Chairman senate committee on poverty alleviation, noted that all senators in the country were given some amount of money to carry out projects in their various constituencies this year, adding that he decided to donate the fertiliser in order to boost farming in his senatorial zone that would contribute towards revitalising the economy of the state.
He said apart from the party leaders and his campaign coordinators, all aspirants who contested for and lost different seats in the seven local government areas of his constituency during the past polls had also benefited from the gesture. He used the forum to urge Nigerians to stop over heating the polity over the 2016 budget returned to the National Assembly by President Muhammadu Buhari. Adding that neither the executive nor the legislature is to be blamed for the delay in the passage of the appropriation, saying they are all doing their constitutional duties’.
Senator Wakili pointed out that the president is empowered by the constitution to propose budget, while the national assembly has the powers of scrutinizing and passing it into law. But lamented that all the present noise by some people in the country on the budget was unnecessary, assuring that the matter would soon be resolved amicably between the two arms of government.
