🧵 #Thread
My good people of Ezeagu/Udi Federal Constituency; on Wednesday 8th March 2023, I officially received the Certificate of Return as Member-Elect to represent our Constituency in what would be the 10th National Assembly.
It was the culmination of the popular mandate you bestowed on me, on the 25th of February 2023 when you trooped out en masse to vote for me, and our great party - #LabourParty and in the process demonstrated your belief in our Legislative Agenda...

On this leadership matter, you will hear several well meaning "elders" in the next few days suggest that we elect from within ourselves the natural leaders that have emerged during this #EndSARS struggle
They mean well, but we must resist their calls for conventional leadership. This kind of leadership is the only style the older generations know, and for them, it is difficult to conceptualise a successfull movement without one. #EndSARS
But just as millenia ago it was unheard of for a country or a people to have no King and to be ruled by elected leaders, so also we are on the cusp of a new breed of leadership. #EndSARS

We sent a Memo to @nassnigeria highlighting our requests on the huge cuts in allocation to major sectors in the 2020 revised budget

UBEC Budget should be restored to N112bn &

Capital projects under Health Budget to N159bn

Other key sectors should also be prioritized

Thread! Image
N4.75bn cut was made to developmental projects under the capital component of the Ministry of Education

Capital projects in the Education budget should be restored to a minimum of N84bn which was initially approved

Developmental projects should also be introduced
#GetInvolved Image
@nassnigeria should vote more funds for UBEC as the UBEC budget ceiling doesn't stipulate 2% of consolidated revenue fund but ''not less than 2%''.

CRF should be reviewed from N2.52tn to N5.59tn thereby increasing the budget for UBEC from N51bn to N112bn. Image

AS we are all focused and arguing over the choice between @atiku and @MBuhari and following needless cat and mouse game over budget for #NigeriaDecides2019 NASS finally had the brainwave to divert N242.24bn (via virement) from existing budgets to fund 2019 elections.
Guess what budgets our dear overpaid #NASS led by @bukolasaraki choose to cut? Agriculture N11bn. HEALTH N8.05bn. EDUCATION N10.2bn. Works (roads included), Power and Housing N25.5bn. Science & Tech - N7.46bn. Water Resources - N12.95bn and more. Budget trackers went DEAF n BLIND
.@bukolasaraki and his cabal in #NASS claims these cuts were agreed on with the Presidency. This is a clever by half claim for those who forget how the @inecnigeria budget became a convenient weapon and was endlessly delayed by NASS. Weponised delay.…

It is great that most parties have now identified their flag bearers for the 2019 Presidential Election. In that vain, I'd love to congratulate President @MBuhari of the @OfficialAPCNg, and @atiku of the @OfficialPDPNig as the two major contenders.
The debate is expected to be issue-based, and void of unnecessary propaganda (hopefully) from both camps.

One of such issues is that of #Restructuring which appears to be a major part of @atiku's campaign of which, I am of the view, should be addressed.
#Restructuring, as an issue, is not new. Actually, it was a major part of the campaign of the @OfficialAPCNg back in 2014/15. Atiku was a member of the APC at the time.
