SENATE CONDEMNS 2018 BUDGET
Members of the Senate at the plenary today took turns to criticise the 2018 Appropriation Bill presented to the National Assembly by President Muhammadu Buhari as badly prepared.
The lawmakers took turns to accused the Executive of not showing the seriousness the budget proposal deserves.
Most of them raised issues with the alleged lackadaisical attitude of heads of ministries, departments, and agencies of the Federal Government to budget defence sessions organised by the National Assembly.
They also pointed out that the December target for passing the budget was feasible, blaming it on poor implementation of the 2017 budget.
