Alleged non-payment of six hundred and sixty-three billion Naira.

The House of Representatives has mandated its committee on Army to investigate the activities of the Nigerian Army over its alleged non-payment of six hundred and sixty-three billion Naira non-regular allowances to its Personnel over the past two years.


The Order was given yesterday following a motion sponsored by Mr. Abubakar Nalaraba which drew the attention of the House to an alleged under-utilization of the resources despite increment in budgetary provision for the allowances in 2020 and 2021.


The Lawmakers also raised concerns that despite the increment in budgetary provision for non-regular allowances from two hundred and eighty-three billion Naira in 2020 to about three hundred and eighty billion Naira in 2021, the welfare of army personnel has not felt the corresponding effect, while personnel of the Nigerian Army involved in internal security operations, training and performance of other military duties are still being owed various types of non-regular allowances.
