Senate Finally Approves President Buhari's Request To Adjust 2016 Budget 

The Senate has approved President Muhammadu Buhari’s request to amend the 2016 budget.

It will be recalled that, President Buhari had requested permission from the Senate to re-assign N180.8 billion to critical recurrent and capital items.

The upper legislative chamber approved the request on Tuesday, November 29, after receiving a report from the Appropriations Committee, which was led by Danjuma Goje.

Buhari is also seeking senate approval to secure a $30 billion loan facility to fund the budget so as to help take the country out of the current recession.
