By Henry Umoru
ABUJA– STRONG indications emerged Friday that approval of the N189billion budget proposal made by the Independent National Electoral Commission ( INEC) for conduct of the 2019 general elections by the National Assembly has suffered a major set back.
From Friday’s meeting, it became very obvious that giving nod to the said amount is now hanging in the balance.
It became very clear that Senators and members of House of Representatives are in a dilemma on whether to approve the N189bn or the N143bn requested for that purpose this year by President Muhammadu Buhari.
