2016 Budget: Senate President Alleges Document Switch By Presidency

There is a new twist to the saga over the  2016 budget in the Senate.

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has revealed that the Senior Special Assistant to the President on the Senate, Senator Ita Enag, reproduced a budget document different from what President Buhari originally submitted to the National Assembly.

The Senate President made this revelation during Thursday’s legislative proceedings.

Senator Saraki said that the Committee on Ethics and Privileges made this finding in the course of investigating the matter.

“We have received the report of the Committee on Ethics Privileges and Public Petition on investigations surrounding the 2016 Appropriation Bill.

“Our finding is that Senator Ita Enag, the SSA President on NAS matters printed copies of the 2016 Appropriation Bill and brought to the Senate. We have discovered that what he brought was different from the version presented by Mr President.

“We have resolved to consider only the version presented by the President as soon as we receive soft copy of the original soft copy of the original document from the executive,” the Senate President explained.

      This is getting more interesting. Nigerians need to get to the root of this issue, we need to know who is lying? If what the Senate President said is true then we need to get the other version.
