FG Denies Ruling Out Full Implementation Of 2016 Budget

Buhari-Osinbajo-UdomaThe federal government has denied ruling out full implementation of the 2016 budget, saying it aims and would strive to achieve 100 per cent implementation of the budget, despite the late signing of the fiscal document.
The Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udo Udoma, had reportedly told State House correspondents on Friday shortly after President Muhammadu Buhari signed the 2016 budget into law in his office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja that the budget may not be fully implemented due to the late start.
Refuting the report in a statement yesterday, the media aide to the minister, Mr Akpandem James, said his boss only conceded that the late approval might constrain full implementation.
“Nevertheless the federal government intends to still try its best to achieve 100 per cent implementation”, James said.
He also claimed that at no time did Mr. Udoma rule out the possibility of full implementation as reported.
