Buhari meets former senate president, former speaker over budget

26 April 2016, 18:23

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has met with former Senate President, Ken Nnamani; and former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Masari,over the current face-off between the Presidency and the National Assembly over the 2016 budget.

The meeting was held inside the President’s office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Nnamani and Masari later confirmed to State House correspondents that the issue of the budget formed part of the discussion they had with Buhari.

Nnamani described budget preparation as a peculiar area, saying the executive and the legislature have to collaborate for a proper budget to be passed.

Concerning the current impasse, the former President of the Senate urged the National Assembly to embark on self examination.

The chairman of the Appropriation committee of the Senate, Danjuma Goje and his counterpart in the House of Representatives, Abdulmumin Jibrin, had earlier appealed to their colleagues in the National Assembly to reopen discussion on the 2016 budget.
