Finance Minister presents 2015 budget to National Assembly
The minister presented the document in separate appearances before the Senate and the House of Representatives.
The tradition had been to present the budget before a joint sitting of both houses but this was reportedly shelved because President Goodluck Jonathan had delegated the task to Okonjo-Iweala.
The minister was accompanied to the National Assembly by other ministers and the Director-General, Budget Office of the Federation, Bright Okogu.
