Just when cross-section of Nigerians were already raising eyebrows over the cost budgeted for the organization of ongoing National Conference, the conference leadership has disclosed that it will need more funds to cater for the amendments in the composition of its committees.
This will be an addition to the reported N7bn set aside for the conference.
Delegates on Monday at resumption of plenary in Abuja, agreed to remold the proposed 20 committees by suggesting new ones and collapsing some others.
The conference Vice-Chairman, Prof. Bolaji Akinyemi, who made this known, said the principal officials would have to approach government to meet up with the new amendments.
He said, “We may have to go to government for more funds. If government gives us more funds, we will rent more committee rooms”.
