BUDGET PADDING: Gowon wants those involved prosecuted

Former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon has called for the prosecution of all members of the National Assembly involved in the padding of the 2016 budget.

Gowon, who made the call while speaking with newsmen on the sideline of the health caravan and award ceremony in Abuja, said the prosecution of such lawmakers, would discourage padding of the future budget bills sent to the legislature.

Nigeria’s wartime leader recalled while in office, how the late political sage, Pa Obafemi Awolowo who was in-charge of Finance Ministry, nurtured the economy.

Awolowo, according to him taught his cabinet how to survive in wartime without resorting to borrowing.
