Abuja - Federal lawmakers are set to remove a further N37 billion from the 2016 budget following the discovery of 25 fresh errors in the document.
According to a Naij report, the budget items, which have been thoroughly scrutinized by the Senate and House of Representatives committees on Appropriation, have been described as "avoidable".
One of the line items within the budget, assigned for office repairs, amounts to over N21 billion.

Line item duplication, unspecified quantities, lack of location for items, exhorbitant allocations for office repairs and wrongly classified items have all been blamed for the fresh new batch of errors that currently face the National Assembly.
The 2016 budget document has been the subject of controversy and shame since its introduction to the National Assembly by President Muhammadu Buhari.
In response to previous errors that were discovered in the document, several civil servants have been redeployed or sacked due to budget padding.
Many have described Buhari's punishment of the guilty parties as a "slap on the wrist", with some even calling out the move a shame on the war against corruption.
