NASS, Jonathan face-off can harm the polity – Orji

UMUAHIA – ABIA State Governor, Thoredore Orji, has called on the National Assembly to resolve the controversy over poor budget implementation with the Executive, noting that the issue was capable of harming the polity.

He also noted that failure to resolve the crisis now,  can exacerbate the current tension created by insecurity in most northern states.

Orji said this in a statement by his Special Adviser on Public Communication,  Mr. Ben Onyechere.

He said: ‘’The altercation over implementation of the instruments of budgets between the presidency and National Assembly can be said to be avoidable, because it will exacerbate the current tension created by insecurity in parts of the northern states and as such we must be careful not to create unnecessary distractions from our focus which is to provide and upgrade the living standards of our people while shunning  measures that will increase political volatility.
