Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has described reports that the 2016 budget was stolen as “an incredible and award winning April fool stunt”.
Dogara described the reports of the missing 2016 Budget as a hoax that came too early in the year, as it wasn’t yet April. “1st April arrived too early this year on Twitter. 2016 Budget estimates stolen at NASS? Pretty funny stuff!
“It’s an incredible and award winning April fool stunt.
“The budget is in the custody of the Clerk to the House of Representatives. I can confirm no one has broken into his office.
“Each of the two Houses got a copy of the Budget estimate,” said the speaker.
