The president of Nigeria President Buhari will be presenting the 2017 budget on December 1
After the news of the missing 2016 budget that was first discussed by the senate and house of representatives on the 12 of January 2016 it was made known to the public on the 18 of January 2016 few days after the unexpected occurrence. It was also said that the presidency was been accused by the senators for the missing of the 2016 budget on the 13 of January 2016.
It was also rumoured that the 2016 budget was found being used to wrap bean cake popularly called akara in Jos but it was not clearly stated the date,place and time. And some said it was seen in Warri Delta State and others said Jos but it was not specified or clarified. To many Nigerians this could be very very funny. But trust me, it is not. Ehere have it been heard that a budget of a country went missing? Sometimes the government of a Nation as Nigeria should be held accountable for some of their actions.
Some days ago, President Buhari declared making a presentation before a joint session of the Senate and the House of Representatives about the 2017.
On the 1st(Thursday) of December President Muhammadu Buhari will be presenting the 2017 budget to the National Assembly and we are hoping that this time, it wont get missing.
President Buhari as i heard will make the presentation before a joint session of the Senate and the House of Representatives. This was unraveled by the Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio on Wednesday, November 23.
“We can see that we don’t have a perfect document in our hands but of course we are looking at assumptions and assumptions may not necessarily be correct,” Akpabio said.
President Buhari on the 25th of November 2016 said he will not allow the 2017 budget to be padded unlike that of the 2016 budget that was distorted.
The government were been questioned by the Senators on the decision to set the foreign exchange rate at 290 to the dollar instead of the actual price the country had experienced.
President Buhari also added on that conference meeting that the challenges faced by Nigerians in 2016 will not be experienced in 2017 as it will change for the better and take new dimension.
