Speaking during the ministry’s budget defense session in the national assembly, Chairman of the Committee, Sen. Peter Nwaoboshi expressed e displeasure over unfinished projects in the region.

Senator Nwaboshi stated that there is no state within the Niger Delta which does not have abandoned projects that should have been completed before now.

The Minority Leader of the Senate, Enyinnaya Abaribe also noted that the Ministry’s budget is an “uncommon budget because it is designed to fail. He, therefore, requested that the budget should be taken back for reworking, taking into cognizance all the projects that were pointed out and we give them another day to come and defend the budget.
