Missing Budget: Saraki Promises C’ttees’ Feedback Tomorrow

There has been an assurance from the National Assembly that the committee assigned to look into the missing 2016 budget will, on Thursday ( January 14, 2016), present the feedback of its findings.
Saraki gave this assurance during proceedings on the floor of the Senate, following a Point of Order raised by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senator, representing Abia South Senatorial District, Sen. Eyinnaya Abaribe, for the Senate to address the issue of the missing budget, which dominated the traditional and social media space since yesterday.
Abaribe, quoting order 42 of the Senate Standing Rule, said the matter was discussed yesterday, during a closed door session of the Senate without feedback.
But responding, the Senate President said: “It was agreed in the closed session yesterday, that the Senate will wait for a feedback from the committees assigned to look into the matter,” adding that “the feedback from the committees should be ready by tomorrow (Thursday).”
Deliberation on the missing 2016 budget documents will, however, be hampered until another is made available to the senates.
