Revealed: 'David Mark shared from N40bn annually for 8 years'

Shocking revelation has emerged that President Muhammadu Buhari has slashed the N100 billion Constituency funds meant for the 469  Senatorial Districts and Federal Constituencies to N60 billion.
 Investigations by the Nigerian Tribune indicate that the President ordered the reduction, a situation which has placed the constituencies of the Principal Officers in the Senate and House of Representatives in jeopardy.
It was gathered that the Senators and members of the House of Representatives have been requested to submit details of the project to be executed in their constituencies to the Committees on Appropriation in the two chambers.

Sources affirmed that the cut would affect the N40 billion meant for execution of projects in the constituencies of Principal Officers of the Senate and the House of Representatives, as according to a source, all the constituencies are only to now benefit from the N60 billion allocations.

Reacting to the development, the APC candidate in the forthcoming rerun in Benue South, Daniel Onjeh faulted the claim by Mark that he is not being the rot in the zone after after taking his own share of the N40bn for 8 years as a principal officer. 

His words, "#‎DavidMark‬'s lie of being only a legislator, thus, not responsible for ‪#‎BenueSouth‬'s over 16 years stagnation and underdevelopment is exposed here! "We have held severally that aside the primary role of a legislator to legislate, our Nigeria's legal frame work extends the task of a legislator to a secondary oversight function towards ensuring federal presence in a lawmakers immediate constituency.

As a Principal Officer in the Senate, David Mark shared from N 40 Billion annually for 8 Years!
