Abuja – Fear has reportedly gripped several top officials of the Budget Department of the National Planning Ministry, as President Muhammadu Buhari returns home from abroad this week.
According to Vanguard, sources within the presidency confirmed that Buhari was very angry over the alleged padding of the budget by some officials.
The sources said Buhari had ordered detectives to "fish out" those who were involved in the doctoring of the budget, as he sought to have them punished.
This comes after the president vowed last week to deal with all those involved in the 'padding' of the 2016 National Budget which led to the discrepancies in the document.
Buhari described the alterations as "embarrassing and disappointing".
The president said this while addressing the Nigerian Community in Saudi Arabia.
