Detailed copy of 2016 budget ready tomorrow.

Baring any last minutes change of mind, a detailed clean copy of the 2016 budget will be ready tomorrow for inward transmission to the presidency for assent. 

Recall that the presidency last week said that the passed budget will not be assented to by President Muhammadu Buhari because the passed budget did not contain the details. 

But reacting to that, Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation, Rep Abdulmumuni Jibrin said that some previous administrations in the country especially former President Olusagun Obasanjo during his time signed the budget without the details which was made available two weeks latter. 

However, a member of the Appropriation Committee, Rep Joseph Edionwele representing Esan Centra/Esan West/Igueben Federal Constituency of Edo State told Vanguard that there was no cause for alarm as the joint committees will meet Tuesday, to produce the clean copy for the onward transmission to the president.
