The.Prime Minister says that.while the.Opposition argued.about the.different funding amounts, he.says that they.should check with the NCD Commission to clarify.what.happened to the funding.as the.managers.of.the. project.
He..said.that the.goverment,.while. not having proper.data to distribute funds according to population size, did.have the.mechanisms of the.DSIP and.the.PSIP funds system which accounts for.almost.K3 billion in funds meant.for.development.
He.was.speaking.after.a.heated exchange.with the.Opposition Leader on.funds.allocated to.urban areas.
O'Neill.said that the.government.would.work.towards rectifying the.data.isssue.with.the rollout.and.implementation of the.National Identity (NID).program.
