Senator Walks Out of TV Interview Over 2024 Budget Questions

Senator Jarigbe Agom Jarigbe, representing Cross River North in the National Assembly, sparked drama by abruptly ending a live TV interview when questioned about the 2024 budget on Sunday.

During the Arise News breakfast show, Senator Jarigbe expressed reluctance to discuss budget details, stating he hadn’t scrutinized it line by line.

When pressed by the anchor, who sought specifics for his senatorial district, Senator Jarigbe grew defensive, insisting it was his duty to serve his constituents rather than delve into budget minutiae. Frustrated, he threatened to walk away, citing potential backlash, before abruptly disconnecting.

The incident underscores tensions surrounding the 2024 budget, which faced integrity concerns following allegations of padding by Bauchi Central Senator Abdul Ningi. Despite denials from both the National Assembly and the Executive, Ningi’s suspension for three months further heightened scrutiny of budgetary processes.
