Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state says no security vote is allocated to him or his office, as claimed by the House of Representatives.
House of Reps spokesman, Abdurazak Namdas had accused the governor, of misleading with the security vote he made public on Wednesday.
According to Namdas, the security vote published, was that of the Kaduna state government as contained in the 2017 budget, and challenged the governor to make public his own security vote.
But the governor in a statement by his chief press secretary, Samuel Aruwan, said no security vote was allocated to him or his office, except the one he made public, which is the state government’s assistance to the security agencies operating in the state.
The governor says Kaduna state government does not operate what he called an opaque budget like that of the National Assembly.
