N’Assembly suspends 2017 budget over police raid on Goje’s home

The National Assembly will not pass the 2017 Appropriation Bill soon as the Chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriations, Senator Danjuma Goje, told the upper chamber  of the National Assembly on Wednesday that  the police  carted away budget documents when they  raided  his Abuja home recently.

Goje, while raising a point of order at the plenary, lamented the damage done to his property  during the raid, saying work on the 2017 budget had been put on hold since the policemen invaded his house and took away the documents.

He said, “We were holding a meeting on the budget on Thursday (when his house was raided). So, from Thursday ((last week)   till now, we have not been able to meet because some of the papers are not around. Many of us are traumatised. My house as a politician is a beehive of activities; people are coming from all over the country to sympathise with me. I have no time to sit.
