Chairman of the House Committee on FCT, Mukhtar Betara, has urged FCT Minister Nyesom Wike to prioritize transparency, accountability, and adherence to budgetary guidelines in project execution in the territory.

Betara emphasized this during the 2024 budget proposal presentation by the FCT Minister in Abuja.

The Lawmaker underscored the committee’s commitment to ensuring efficient fund utilization for tangible benefits amid FCT’s developmental challenges.

Betara stressed the need for robust monitoring mechanisms to track project progress and hold authorities accountable.

Meanwhile, Wike disclosed a budget of over one trillion naira, allocating over N421 billion for recurrent expenditure and N726.3 billion for capital projects, including school renovations, bus terminals, healthcare, infrastructure, water treatment, and sanitation.

He also highlighted concerns over double allocations and shady land deals, vowing to address land racketeering.
