Chairman of Senate Committee on Higher Education, Senator Binta Masi Garba, has said that the N10 billion padding reported to be discovered in the education budget is meant for the Universal basic Education Commission and a typographical error from the office of the National Planning and Budget.
Garba said the issue was not with the ministry of education and that it had been resolved by the house and the senate and would be amended in the budget.
