Budget: MDA Given Ultimatum

The Senate has given Ministries Departments and Agencies, MDA one-week ultimatum to submit details of their 2018 budget proposals or risk sanctions.

The Upper Chamber gave the ultimatum after Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan, raised a point of order informing the Senate that out of 64 government agencies, only one has submitted details of its 2018 budget proposal.

Bukola Saraki, the Senate President, while responding to the point of order says he is disappointed that despite efforts by the President’s aide on National Assembly matters, agencies are yet to submit their 2018 budget details to Parliament.
