In a viral video, Senator Jarigbe Agom-Jarigbe from Cross River North, on Tuesday, said some senators got a total of N500 million each from the 2024 Budget.

Agom-Jarigbe disclosed this during a stormy session in Abuja while the lawmakers debated budget padding claims by Senator Abdul Ningi from Bauchi Central Senatorial District.

Ningi had said the alleged N3.7trn padded was not tied to any project in the 2024 N28.7trn budget.

Agom-Jarigbe, who commented on the allegations by Ningi, alleged that some Senators are guilty of such practice, adding that some senior senators got N500 million each from the 2024 Appropriation Act.

“If we want to go into this issue, all of us are culpable. Some senators here, so-called senior senators got N500 million each. I am a ranking senator, I didn’t get. Did I go to the press? Most of you got. We don’t have to go into those issues,” he said.
