Senate President Bukola Saraki was at the state house Abuja yesterday where he had a closed door meeting with President Buhari. Speaking with state house correspondents after his meeting, Saraki disclosed that the 2017 budget which was approved by the Federal Executive Council on Wednesday November 30th, will be presented to a joint session of the National Assembly within the next 10 days.
“Well, I haven’t seen the details, not until the president lays it. I am sure within the next 10 days, it will be presented. We are ready. Once the document comes to us, we are ready. I think this time around, a lot of work has taken place behind the scene. There is a lot of more collaboration and you will see the result of that in the time frame it will take after the president will have presented it.”he said
