The Senate on Tuesday held a stormy session over alleged disappearance of the hard copies of the 2016 budget proposal.


The lawmaker were said to have been “troubled” that the fiscal document presented to a joint session of the National Assembly on December 22, 2015 by President Muhammadu Buhari, suddenly developed wings and “disappeared.”

The “missing document” was said to have been the subject of a closed session summoned by Senate President, Bukola Saraki, shortly after the lawmakers reconvened from their Christmas and New Year break.

President Buhari had on December 22 last year presented the budget proposal to the joint session of the National Assembly.

Copies of the budget proposal were however not distributed to the lawmakers before they vacated for the Christmas break.

The disappearance of the hard copies of the budget document was said to have been disclosed by the Senate leader, Senator Ali Ndume, during a closed door session that lasted over 90 minutes.

There was no briefing after the secret meeting, but Ndume roundly dismissed insinuations that the fiscal document was missing.
