See how our sports minister disgraced himself in the national assambly

From the "United states of Nigeria", to we did not espect the super Falcons to win, now this "the funds spended were properly spended"
 the minister of sports Solomon Dalung was summoned by the senate to explain how he spent the monies allocated to his ministry and in the bid to defend that his ministry is not corrupt he made a blunder, see what transpired between him and the members of the senate.

 Before we left for Rio (Olympics), we wrote and requested for the release of monies appropriated for in the budget and it has not been released for the federations.

“450million (Naira) was appropriated for the Olympics and we spent far far far beyond that; so monies that were given to the federation could not have been monies meant for Olympics,” Dalung stated. 
The statement did not go well with some members of the committee who believe the sports ministry should not have spent more than the provisions in the budget.

"It is a serious matter, because he is spending outside the confines of the approval given by the national assembly," says Danburam Nuhu a member of the Senate committee on sports.

Dalung replied: “The funds ‘spended were properly spended’ because we got them from intervention funds from Mr. President.”

Chairman of the committee Bukar Lawal however advised that the sports ministry must re-appear before the committee at a later date.

“You make sure that when next you are here, you give us documents that are properly guided because we will not consider the 2017 budget until we are through with the 2016 budget and that is the procedure,” he charged.
