Not satisfied, the Committee Chairman, Senator Kashim Shettima and members of the committee reacts to the N750 daily feeding cost.
Senator Utazi, therefore, made a move on behalf of the committee, saying N750 going by the value of Naira today and high costs of consumables is too low.
According to CHANNELS TV, in Utazi’s words: “Mr Chairman, I will urge this committee to jerk up the proposed N750 feeding cost per day on each of the inmates at the custodian centres to at least N1,000.00 because no grown-up Nigeria today can survive with N750 per day as far as feeding is concerned,” he said.
