2019: INEC denied that 6 billion naira budget not for feeding police alone


INEC has denied the report that the 6 billion earmarked for feeding was not meant for feeding the police alone. In a statement issued from their facebook account , it said that :
INEC did not budget N6 billion to feed the police.

There is no budget head for feeding the police in the INEC Election Budget 

What we do have is a budget head for feeding all election personnel on election days and it covers all INEC permanent and ad hoc staff, presiding officers, supervisors, monitors, collation and returning officers and all security personnel on election duty including the police, NSDC, Immigration, Prison & NDLEA officers, etc numbering in excess of a million people. The estimated budget for this is more than 25% less than what is being bandied around and it covers all elections including bye elections, re runs, run offs and court ordered elections.

It will be recalled that President Buhari  had in a letter dated July 11, requested Senate's approval ofPresident Muhammadu Buhari had in request Senate's approvals of  N242.45 billion for the 2019 General Elections.

The sum of N189.21 billion was earmarked for INEC of which N 6 billion was set aside for feeding of security personnels.
