2019 polls: INEC to feed policemen with N6bn
This is contained in the budget for the polls presented to the House of Representatives by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Feeding of policemen during the 2019 polls will gulp N6bn.
Lawmakers have raised eyebrows over the figure and are asking the INEC chairman, Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu, to defend it.
The budget defence is ongoing at the National Assembly.
