The Chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriation, Jibrin Barau, said the development became necessary because the budget of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which is critical to the conduct of the 2023 general election, has not been captured in the proposal.

It was learnt that the Chairman of INEC, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, is presently out of the country, hence his inability to defend his proposal before the appropriation committee.
