INEC has allocated a sum of N6bn for the feeding of policemen for the forthcoming election in 2019.
This estimate is contained in the budget for the forthcoming polls, which was presented to the House of Representatives by the commission.
The lawmakers have however expressed their displeasure about the figure, demanding the chairman of the commission, Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu to defend it.
Meanwhile, the defence of the budget is ongoing at the National Assembly.
More details later.
