President Buhari Speaks On 'Missing' Budget

President Muhammadu Buhari via his spokesman Malam Garba Shehu reacted to the reports on the alleged missing 2016 national budget.

The Nigerian senate was incapable to commence considering the proposed budget because of the missing documentation.
President Buhari provided the hard copies of his first budget to both houses at the end of December.
Reacting via his Facebook page, Shehu Garba wrote: ”Enquiries about the budget: Nobody except the president can withdraw the budget. As far as we know, he hasn’t done that.
”The copies in their hundreds have been delivered to both chambers of the National Assembly.
”By tradition, once the budget is submitted, it ceases to be our property. Enquiries as to where it is should be directed to the appropriate quarters. Best regards.
