The Nigerian Senate has summoned the accounting officers of seven federal ministries, departments and agencies over their failure to defend their input in the N5.01trn loans proposed to fund the 2022 budget deficits.
President of Senate, Ahmad Lawan, decried the non-appearance of the affected MDAs before the Senate Committee on Loan and Foreign Debts.
Lawan, while issuing the summons at the close of plenary on Wednesday, said if the MDAs failed to appear, the Senate would take appropriate and prompt actions against them.
President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has reconstituted the leadership and membership of some standing and special committees of the Senate.
Lawan made the announcement moments before the upper chamber adjourned plenary.
The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, in his remarks urged the new Chairmen and Vice-Chairmen to commence their duties immediately, particularly with work on the 2022 budget.
