Nigeria In One Minute

We shouldn’t have post-budget fight with Buhari –Reps

Published

on

The House of Representatives said on Sunday that the National Assembly did not expect a post-budget dispute with President Muhammadu Buhari over the 2018 budget.

The Deputy Chairman, House Committee on Appropriations, Mr. Chris Azubuogu, told The PUNCH exclusively that the reason was that the N9.12tn document was a product of mutual understanding between the two sides.

The Senate and the House had passed the budget on May 16 and followed it up by transmitting it to Buhari on Friday last week.

What is left is for the President to append his signature to the 2018 Appropriation Bill to become an Act.
