Mr Gbajabiamilia said this on Tuesday in Abuja as members reconvened plenary after weeks of budget defence.

He said that the house had set a standard by restoring the January to December budget circle, saying that Nigerians were watching to see if that could be sustained.

Mr Gbajabiamilia said that though some committees had summited their reports to the Committee on Appropriation, many were yet to do so.

“Some of the committees yet to submit their reports include Solid Minerals, Science and Technology Labour, Employment and Productivity, Local Content, Drugs and Narcotic.

“Submit and defend your budget report unfailingly, please take this very seriously,” he said.
