Senate accuses presidency of submitting two versions of 2016 budget

Senate President Bukola Saraki has accused the Presidency of submitting two versions of the 2016 Appropriation Bill to the National Assembly.
Saraki, on Thursday, insisted that though the budget document was never missing, President Muhammadu Buhari and his Senior Special Assistant on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang, submitted different versions.
But Saraki did not state when Enang submitted his version of the budget document and who received it from him.
“Today, the Senate received the report of the ad hoc committee setup to investigate the claims of the ‪#‎MissingBudget2016‬.
“The report of the committee revealed that the Senate received two versions of the 2016 Appropriation Bill – one from President Muhammadu Buhari at the December 22nd, 2015 Joint Session of the National Assembly, and another from the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Ita Enang,” Saraki said.

I go to bed every night with Chibok girls on my mind – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has yet again, reiterated his commitment to bring back the 219 girls kidnapped from Government Secondary in Chibok, Borno State.
Consequently, the president has ordered an investigation into the abduction of the Chibok girls.
The panel, which will be named by the National Security Adviser, NSA, General Babagana Munguno, will seek to unravel the remote and immediate circumstances leading the kidnap of the girls by Boko Haram terrorists as well the other events, actions and inactions that followed the incident.
The President, in Abuja, who met with parents of the Chibok girls on Thursday, re-assured them that he will stop at nothing to bring the girl back home.
He said: “I assure you that I go to bed and wake up every day with the Chibok girls on my mind. The unfortunate incident happened before this government came into being.”
“What have we done since we assumed office? We re-organized the military, removed all the service chiefs and ordered the succeeding service chiefs to deal decisively with the Boko Haram insurgency.”
“In spite of the terrible economic condition we found ourselves in, we tried to get some resources to give to the military to reorganize and equip, retrain, deploy more troops and move more forcefully against Boko Haram.”
“And you all know the progress we have made. When we came in Boko Haram was in Adamawa, Yobe and Borno. Boko Haram has now been reduced to areas around Lake Chad. Securing the Chibok girls is my responsibility.”
“The service chiefs and heads of our security agencies will tell you that in spite of the dire financial straits that we found the country in, I continue to do my best to support their efforts in that regard.”
“This is a Nigeria where we were exporting average of two million barrels per day at over 140 dollars per barrel. Now it is down to about 27 to 30 dollars. You have been reading in the press how they took public funds, our funds, your funds and shared it, instead of buying weapons.”
“That was the kind of leadership I succeeded. That was the kind of economy I inherited. God knows I have done my best and I will continue to do my best,” President Buhari said.
