The money was reduced from the initial amount of thirty-seven billion naira, hence cutting 9.3 billion naira from the budget for the renovation of the complex.
Meanwhile, the Basic Health Care Provision Fund was reduced to 25.5 billion naira, a decrease of over 42.5 per cent.
Also in the proposed revised budget, the Universal Basic Education fund was reduced by 54.2 per cent to N51.1bn from N 111.7 billion naira.
Earlier, Reno Omokri, the former spokesman for Ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan criticized the decision of the federal government to borrow $22.7 billion from foreign nations and spending 27 billion naira to renovate the National Assembly complex.
According to Omokri, in 2017, President of the United States of America, Donald Trump renovated the White House with $1.7 million.
He further stressed that the amount budgeted for the renovation can build ten world-class hospitals to treat COVID-19 patients in the country.
