National Assembly Responsible for ‘Missing’ 2016 Budget – Presidency

The Muhammadu Buhari presidency has denied withdrawing the 2016 budget submitted to the National Assembly on December 22, 2015.

Reacting to the sudden ‘disappearance’ of the budget from the federal legislature Tuesday, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Garba Shehu said enquiries as to the whereabouts of the document should be directed to the National Assembly.

In a series of tweets on his handle @GarShehu, the presidential aide said the President has not withdrawn the budget since hundreds of copies were submitted in December.

“By tradition, once the budget is submitted, it ceases to be our property,” he said, adding:

“The copies in their hundreds have been delivered to both chambers of the National Assembly.

“Enquiries about the budget: Nobody except the President can withdraw the budget. As far as we know, he hasn’t done that.

“Enquiries as to where it is should be directed to the appropriate quarters. Best regards.”
