2016 Budget: Buhari Writes to the National Assembly, Points Out ‘Grey Areas’


The leadership of the National Assembly is set to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari over the standoff on the 2016 budget.

Meeting with journalists in the National Assembly, the Spokesman of the House of Representatives, Abdurazaq Namdas, said that the President has sent a letter to the National Assembly outlining the “grey areas” in the 2016 budget that need to be addressed.

“I can confirm to you that we are in possession of the letter from the President identifying grey areas,” Mr Namdas said.

Meanwhile, the Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udo Udoma, had said on Wednesday that the Nigerian government was yet to conclude talks with the legislature on the 2016 budget, but has set up a monitoring and evaluation mechanism to make sure that the budget delivers what it promised when finally signed by the President.

Mr Udoma spoke to reporters after the Federal Executive Council’s meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.
