The Peoples Democratic Party on Tuesday defended the N4bn allocation to the building of First Ladies Mission office complex in Abuja as contained in the 2013 budget of the Federal Capital Territory. The FCT Administration total budget for the year is N253bn.

“The complex on completion is to host the AFLPM which has the backing of the African Union as an instrument for championing the cause of women and youth development.

 “The Peace Mission House is a public institution, a building in the likes of the Women Development Centre, Nigerian Cultural Centre, among others, which the law empowers the FCTA to build and operate in provision of facilities for the advancement of its development efforts. It will go a long way in reducing the financial burden in rents for international bodies being hosted by the country.”

The PDP spokesman also defended the increment of budget for the official residence of Vice-President Namadi Sambo.

“The increment in the budget of the official residence of the Vice President was occasioned by the changes in the redesigning, expertly advised to take care of emerging security challenges. The house is not for the exclusive benefit of the current Vice Present as the malicious propaganda of the opposition has been feeding the public with,” he said.
