Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has met with his deputy, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and the Minister of Budget and National Planning, Udoma Udo Udoma in a bid to resolve the impasse over the 2016 budget.
The meeting may be to stave off a constitutional crisis if the President does not sign the budget and also, does not return it to the National Assembly on or before April 23.
