Budget padding a sacrilege- Clark

By Egufe Yafugborhi

WARRI—IJAW national leader, Chief Edwin Clark, has said that anyone found culpable in the budget padding saga rocking the House of Representatives should be made to face the music, a it is a sacrilege.

Chief Clark, who reacted to the budget padding controversy rocking the House, also expressed confidence in the anti-corruption posture of President Muhammadu Buhari, and thanked God for enthroning him to stem the tide at a time corruption in Nigeria was at the verge of crumbling the nation’s economy.

Addressing newsmen, yesterday, in Warri, Delta State, Clark said: “These unpatriotic legislators must be brought to book on why they have been padding budgets with projects and figures not approved by the House. They are ordering cars that sell at N17 million for N57 million which are being delivered now.

“To them, Nigeria is not the focus. They must get everything for themselves. The country will have to be cleansed and I am happy we have a president, despite every other thing, who has now stood up to fight corruption and we should support him. This country will progress if we reduce corruption to the barest minimum.”
