Chairman of the Northern Senators Forum (NSF), Senator Abdul Ningi (PDP-Bauchi Central) on Monday, insisted that projects worth N3.7 trillion in the 2024 Appropriation Act are not traceable.

This is even as he denied saying that President Bola Tinubu is operating two separate 2024 budgets.

Ningi in an interview with the BBC Hausa Service, claimed that the Northern Senators Forum had uncovered lopsidedness and padding of the 2024 budget to the tune of N3trillion.

He also claimed that the Forum would soon confront Senate President Godswill Akpabio with the findings of experts it had engaged to scrutinize the 2024 budget and would meet President Bola Tinubu on the issues.

However, Ningi at a press conference told Senate Correspondents that the views he expressed during his interview were his personal opinion and not that of the Northern Senators Forum.
