Senate Slams Executives, Says Budget Is Being Handled With Unseriousness



-Senate members take turns to condemn 2018 budget

Senate says the 2018 budget was badly prepared

Members of the Senate during a plenary session on Tuesday condemned the 2018 Appropriation Bill presented to the National Assembly by President Muhammadu Buhari as badly prepared.

The lawmakers took turns to criticise the Executive of not exhibiting the required seriousness to prepare the budget proposal.

Most of them raised issues with the alleged lackadaisical attitude of heads of ministries, departments, and agencies of the Federal Government to budget defence sessions organised by the National Assembly.

They also pointed out that the December target for passing the budget was feasible, blaming it on poor implementation of the 2017 budget.
