The Co-Founder of BudgIT, Mr Seun Onigbinde, on Thursday revealed that notwithstanding his resignation as a Technical Adviser to the Ministry of Budget, he still provides free consultancy services to the ministry.

 Speaking durting an interview session on Channels Television’s Politics Today, monitored in Lagos, Onigbinde said “We have always provided support for the Budget Office, for the Ministry of Budget and Planning, for Finance, for Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI), for the Nigerian Investment Promotion Council (NIPC).

“We provide consultancy support for them at no fee. At time, we get international donors. So we can continue with that framework to support rather than me permanently out in the ministry,” he said.

Onigbinde who was reacting to his sudden quitting just daysdays after accepting the offer, Onigbinde noted that his appointment was to advise the Minister of Budget (State), Mr Clement Agba.

He revealed that “Look at BudgIT, what we have done for the last eight years is to advocate on the issue of budget reform.”

He insisted his decision to quit was not as a result of the uproar that trailed his appointment.

 Onigbinde had come under intense criticism from the Buhari Media Organisation (BMO), which issued a statement condemning his appointment. The group described Onigbinde as lacking honour and integrity for accepting to serve in a government he criticised.
