Senator Osita Ngwu, who delivered the report to the Senate, emphasized the importance of allocating these funds to support ongoing and future development initiatives in the FCT. The funding will be crucial in addressing various infrastructure challenges and meeting the growing demands of the capital region.

This significant budget allocation comes in addition to the N1.2 trillion budget that was passed earlier in the year by the National Assembly. It underscores the government’s commitment to prioritizing infrastructure development and improving the overall quality of life for residents in the Federal Capital Territory.

Her grievances were acknowledged by the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, who advised her to address the issue through the appropriate channels to ensure transparency and inclusivity in the process.

With the approval of the N98.5 billion supplementary budget, the government aims to accelerate progress on key infrastructure projects, enhance public services, and drive economic growth in the Federal Capital Territory.
