Benue state House of Assembly Thursday called on the Executive to make provision in next year’s budget for the building of a permanent site for the state Christian pilgrims’ Board.
The Lawmakers also resolved that money should always be released to the board early to enable it conclude arrangements timely to avoid pilgrimage journey spilling into another year.
These resolutions were reached during a debate on the report of the House standing committee on Appointments, public service and pension matters on her working visit to ministries, Department and Agencies under its legislative purview.
Contributing, the Deputy speaker, Christopher Adaji said, if the boards permanent site is completed, the money that would have been used to pay rent for their accommodation would be channeled to other areas of development and was supported by his colleagues.
Speaker of the House, Rt Hon.Titus Uba directed that the boards monthly imprest which was reduced to one hundred and fifty thousand (150,000) be reviewed to the former amount of three hundred thousand (300,00) to enable it achieve its set goals.
