The NNPP lawmaker said there was no sectoral allocation of funds to education, health, and other sectors in Tinubu’s speech.

Galambi faulted the national assembly for being an accomplice in the act as it covered up for the executive, alleging that the leadership of the house deliberately connived with Tinubu to deceive the lawmakers.
