The 2016 budget estimates suffered several delays after claims and counter claims from both the legislature and executive arms, each accusing the other of padding the budget.

Mr. Buhari returned the budget to the National Assembly, saying key projects were removed and others not in the estimates he submitted were added.

A meeting was held last week with the leadership of the national assembly after which a committee was formed to look at all “grey areas” and harmoniss them in time for the president’s assent.

The National Assembly reportedly returned a “clean” copy of the budget to the president which he finally signed today.
