N10bn Discovered In Education Budget Was A Typographical Error

 

Days after the Senate Committee on Higher Education raised an alarm over a N10 billion discovered in the Ministry of Education’s 2016 budget, the Chairman of the committee, Sen. Binta Masi Garba, says that the N10 billion discovered in the budget is meant for the Universal basic Education Commission and was a typographical error from the office of the National Planning and Budget.

According to a report by DailyTrust, Garba gave the clarification yesterday in Abuja after the commissioning of Federal University, Lafia’s connection to Nigerian Research and Education Network (NgREN) in inter-conference programme in National Universities Commission.

She said the issue has been resolved by the House of Representatives and the Senate and would be amended in the budget. According to her, the N10 billion which was thought to be a scam, is actually meant for the funding of the Universal Basic Education Commission.

I left NTA in 2005 to pursue my B.SC in Mass Communication at the Olabisi Onabanjo University OOU Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State and finished in 2008 before joining one of Nigeria's best investigative Tabloids (National Enquirer Magazine & www.enquirermag.blogspot.com). I am very privileged to be trained by one of the industry's bests, my boss and mentor Mr. Tunde Moshood Jr, the former Editor of the defunct Fame Magazine, Publisher of National Enquirer and president Miss Global Nigeria who taught me everything I know in Journalism especially the investigative aspect which is the fulfilment of being a member of the Fourth Estate of Realm (as we journalists are usually officially addressed). My desire to take my journalism practice beyond the Newspaper & Magazine came from the passion I have derived over the years from investigative journalism as Online Media is the best platform to tell a story or news the very minute it’s at your disposal without wasting time.
