Budget 2016 cannot be missing-Senate Leader,Ali Ndume

“The Budget cannot be missing. A copy can be laid, it is a symbolic copy, the budget will be in custody of both Chambers. It cannot be stolen, it cannot be  missing. Once the  budget is laid in the National Assembly, it has become the property of the National Assembly” These are the words of Senate Leader, Senator Ali Ndume while reacting to the story that has gained momentum that the 2016 Budget that was presented to a joint session of of the Senate & the House of Representatives was missing.Ndume noted that that is a clear misrepresentation to say a whole budget cannot be found, adding that it is untrue.

On the visit of the Senate President to the President , Ndume stated “Saraki’s visit to the Villa is for the Senate to know the president’s priority. We want to see how to fast track the passage of the budget before the end of February. What is before the Senate is a proposal.Once the President signs it, it cannot be amended. We can turn the budget upside down but it cannot be missing” he insisted
