Presidency Reacts To Missing 2016 Budget
The presidency has responded to the missing N6.08tr Budget at the National assembly.
According to the Senior Special Assistant Media & Publicity, Garba Shehu, Nigerians should direct their enquiries to the appropriate quarters as it ceased to be the property of the presidency once it was submitted.
He also dismissed reports that the president withdrew 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”
