Controversy appears to be trailing the passage of the 2016 budget, as there are reports that the budget is missing. A federal lawmaker, who spoke on condition of anonymity told newsmen that there were fears that the 2016 budget had disappeared from the National Assembly.
The lawmaker said the issue of the whereabouts of the budget was discussed during the closed door meeting. The source further said the Senate had directed its Committee on Ethics and Privileges to investigate the matter. But the Senate spokesman, Aliyu Abdullahi, in an interview with newsmen said he was not aware that the 2016 budget was missing. The House also said 400 copies of the budget had been produced and ready for distribution to members today.
