Abuja, (AN24) – President Muhammadu Buhari has written the National Assembly requesting for the permission to present the 2017 Budget on December 14, 2016.

In the letter, the President requested the audience of the  Legislature to present the budget by 10 am on December 14.

The said letter from the President was read on the floor of the Senate on Tuesday by the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki during the Senate plenary.


Recall that the Executive and the Legislature have been in loggerheads  over the presentation of the Budget.

Surprisingly, both arms have been blaming each other over the delay in the presentation of the Budget.

According to the culture, the 2017 budget is expected to be presented to the Joint Session of the National Assembly.
