A detailed clean copy of the 2016 budget will be ready tomorrow for inward transmission to the presidency for approval, Vanguard reports.

According to a member of the Appropriation Committee, Rep Joseph Edionwele, who spoke to the newspaper, the joint committees will meet Tuesday, April 5, to produce the clean copy for the onward transmission to the president.

Pulse recalls that last week, the Presidency had said that President Muhammadu Buhari would not sign the passed budget because it was not detailed.

In his reaction to that, the Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation, Rep Abdulmumuni Jibrin said that some previous administrations in the country signed the budget without the details.

He said the administration of former president Olusegun Obasanjo signed the budget two week before the details were made available.
