Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed has expressed that there is no plan to review the spending estimates of the 2021 budget.
She has also allayed the fears of federal civil servants that the country’s entering into recession might stall the salary payments of workers.
She made this known while speaking with journalists after the weekly virtual Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in the State House.
Ahmed said even the consequential adjustment in the 2020 budget wholly addressed salary matters.
Recall that the proposed 2021 budget is currently being reviewed by members of the National Assembly.
“On the 2021 budget, we are not planning to retrieve the budget or to reverse the budget beyond the work of appropriation that the National Assembly is currently doing in consultation with us,” she said.
