Breaking News: 2016 budget stolen from the National Assembly





It has been reported that the 2016 budget presented by President Muhammadu Buhari at the National
Assembly is missing. The news was broken by the Senate Leader, Ali Ndume who announced at a closed door meeting that both the hard and soft copies of the document have been stolen therefore the Senate could no deliberate on the budget as scheduled.

The Senate has at the meantime mandated The Chairman, Senate Committee of Appropriation, Danjuma Goje, to lead a team of Senators to search for the document and has further asked Senators to keep it a secrete to avoid embarrassing the Presidency and the Senate

According to PREMIUM TIMES, there are indications that the Presidency might have colluded with the management of the National Assembly to quietly withdraw the documents after detecting some discrepancies in them.
“Can you imagine this kind of national embarrassment?” one senator asked. “Documents that were presented to us with fanfare have been stolen.”

It could recalled that there were rumours of the withdrawal of the budget few weeks after its presentation by President which was believed to be in a bid to correct some mistakes make in the budget but the claim was denied.

Strange things are happening in Nigeria!
