Over the years, the sharing formula for the constituency projects of the reps has always been 60 percent for the members and 40 percent for the principal officers. But the recent allegation by the former chairman of the House committee on Appropriation Hon. Abdulmumini Jibrin leveled against the house leadership over the budget padding scandals now made the house to query the 40 percent allotted to its principal officers.
The members of the house seek the reversal of the sharing formula and the request turns the house agog as the principal officers would not yield to the stand of the house members.
Our stand is, are they really fighting themselves because of the people or this is also a show of shame that has plagued the representative of the people?
