Senate approves Buhari’s request to amend 2016 budget

The Senate has approved President Muhammadu Buhari’s request to amend the 2016 budget by re-assigning N180.8 billion to critical recurrent and capital items.

The Senate’s approval followed the presentation of the report of the Committee on Appropriations led by Danjuma Goje on Tuesday. 

The year is coming to an end in a few weeks, I guess we should be talking of 2017 budget.
