Senate extends budget defence by one week


SENATE yesterday extended the time allotted to Ministries, Departments and Agencies(MDAs) to defend their budgets before its standing committees by one week.

The Senators as a result of the extension adjourned plenary till Tuesday next week.
This was even as the Office of the Surveyor-General of the Federation (OSGN), disowned the N1billion in the 2016 budget profile allocated to it by the Federal Ministry of Works.

The decision to extend the budget defence sessions and suspend plenary was arrived at after Senators held an executive session at the resumption of plenary .
