“But he had said so last week that we did not withdraw the Budget. That is the position. We did not withdraw the Budget.”
President Muhammadu Buhari, had on December 22, 2015, laid the budget proposal of N6.08 trillion before a joint session of the National Assembly.
Meanwhile, there have been speculations that the budget had been withdrawn following some discrepancies noticed after presentation.
On Tuesday, Senate was billed to commence consideration of the budget proposal but did not do so thus, fuelling speculation that it may have been withdrawn by the Presidency.
