  • You would recall that members of the House of Representative had on the 2nd of July 2012 threatened to impeach President Goodluck Jonathan over failure to implement the 2012 budget. The lawmakers are still in pursuit of that course.

    Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, speaker of the House of Representative had last week directed chairmen of all the 89 standing committees to submit reports on level of implementation of the 2012 budget by Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) under their oversight. The action of the speaker suggests that the legislative arm of government is serious about the issue.

    An anonymous source confirms the process;

    “it is the resolve of the House that if the report of the committees on budget implementation indicates failure, the parliament will not collect the 2013 appropriation bill. The budget has to be implemented to a reasonable degree”. “We are not just issuing threats but its our resolve that anybody who refused to implement the 2012 Appropriations Act will be impeached because we won’t allow them to continue violating the law with impunity.
    Despite the non-implementation of the 2012 budget, the upper arm of the National Assembly have hinted at quick passage of the 2013 budget.
