TheNewsGuru (TNG) reports Saraki had promised details of NASS 2018/19 budgets would be made public.

He made the promise at a dialogue session with BudgIT on appropriation process and constituency projects, while vowing that #OpenNASS is now a permanent policy.

According to NASS, publishing details of the 2018 budget is in accordance with the commitment of the leadership of the 8th @NASSNigeria to accountability and transparency.

However, while the NASS has been commended for publishing the budget details, the budget has been criticised as incomplete.

“Please kindly note Bukola Saraki that we appreciate this, but it is incomplete. I guess it must be an error of omission.

He added, “I am not sure we are ready in this country. Shame on you all that think Nigerians are fools.

“Detail budget should tell us how much each member takes as salary, allowances, local or int’l training etc”.
