“Direct Your Questions To NASS”-Presidency Reacts To Missing Budget

President Muhammadu Buhari presenting the 2016 budget to the National Assembly on December 22, 2015.

This afternoon, Daily Trust broke the news that the 2016 budget proposal submitted to the National Assembly by President Muhammadu Buhari is missing. The budget was presented on 22nd, December, 2015  to the joint session of the National Assembly by the President.

The disappearance of the budget document was announced during a closed door session that lasted 90 minutes by the Senate Leader Ali Ndume.

Reacting to the development, Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Shehu Garba said  Nigerians should  direct all their questions about the missing soft and hard copies of the 2016 budget to the National Assembly.

“Nobody, except the president, can withdraw the budget. As far as we know, he (the president) has not 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”, Shehu said.


Budget missing ke? All this and much more happens in our great country Nigeria.

    What else do you expect from an administration based on witch-hunt.
    They’ve got nothing to offer than fighting corruption “Witch-hunt”, so all this is bound to happen. First they misplace their manifesto, then their agenda and now the budget, I hope with the way they’re going they don’t misplace themselves.
