The call followed a submission on the floor of the House, Thursday by Babangida Ibrahim, Member representing Malumfashi/Kafur Federal Constituency of Katsina State.
The report disclosed that the National Assembly and Judiciary receipts on First Line charge were short by ₦1,208,333,333.33 and ₦833,333,333.33, respectively on monthly basis from January to November, 2018.
The House lamented that the Ministry of Finance had failed to comply with its resolution, a situation that had continued to affect the smooth operations of the National Assembly.
The House therefore, has set up a Committee to liaise with the Ministry of Finance to ensure that all outstanding arrears of First Line charge to both the National Assembly and the Judiciary relating to 2018 Appropriation Act were paid.
