Lawmaker sues President Buhari

A House of Reps member has sued Buhari for granting bail outs to states, insisting that the decision was unconstitutional, null and void. 

Honourable Igariwey Onwe filed the case on Wednesday with Abuja High Court. He is seeking,whether the President can, by way of fiat, call for the appropriation and disbursement of public funds from the distrubtable pool account of the Federal, State and Local governments without approval from the National Assembly. Recently President Buhari approved the sum of N400 billion bail out package to states to enable them pay their state workers. 

Joined in the suit are Attorney General of the Federation, Minister for Justice and the Federal Ministry of finance, Revenue Mobilsation Allocation and Fiscal commission and the Auditor General of the federation.
