Buhari Orders 2016 Proposed Budget to be Uploaded Online


President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the immediate online publishing of the proposed 2016 budget in order to welcome well-meaning criticism of its policies, its budget and expenditure from Nigerians.

Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, who stated this in a statement on Sunday said the government has taken the position because it is the only way the change promised the country will have a meaning.

In line with established tradition, he said that the President has directed that the draft 2016 appropriation budget, now before the National Assembly should be uploaded on the website of the budget office so that Nigerians can read it with a view to making their observations.
With online publication of the budget, Garba said the suggestions that the Presidency is misleading the public on any aspects of the budget can no longer stand the test of time.
