Senate president Bukola Saraki, has revealed that the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly matter, Senator Ita Enang, reproduced a budget document different from what President Buhari originally submitted to the National Assembly. The Senate President made this revelation during Thursday’s legislative proceedings.
Senator Saraki said that the Committee on Ethics and Privileges made this finding in the course of investigating the matter. He however, said members of the upper chamber had resolved to start the consideration of the 2016 Appropriation Bill on Tuesday, January 19, but with only the original document submitted to the National Assembly by president Buhari.
