Abuja - The President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, will on Wednesday meet civil society and non-governmental organisations to discuss the 2016 budget.

It was established the meeting would afford the organisations an opportunity to contribute their ideas, perspectives, inputs and strategies to complement those of the lawmakers in order to pass a budget that could be reflective of the needs of a majority of Nigerians.

“The vision of this initiative is also to promote inclusiveness and implement an open and transparent National Assembly as set out in the legislative agenda of the 8th Senate,” read a statement obtained by CAJ News Africa.
