Civil rights groups and political parties have berated the Federal Capital Territory Administration for budgeting N4bn for the construction of First Ladies’ Mission House in Abuja. They said that the N4bn budget was a demonstration of the Goodluck Jonathan administration’s penchant for profligacy. The N4bn proposal was contained in the FCT’s N253bn budget for the 2013 fiscal year currently before the National Assembly. In a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Emma Eneukwu, in Abuja, on Sunday, the All Nigeria Peoples’ Party described the budgetary provision as illegal, corrupt and unpatriotic. It said since the Federal Government had earlier declared the mission as a non- governmental organisation, it would be inappropriate for the same government to spend public funds on it. Among the bizarre lines embedded in the budget document are: – N4bn for construction of First Lady’s mission building. – N5bn for rehabilitation of commercial sex workers. – N7bn for construction of two city gates.
