1 min read

Nigeria –Some members of parliament in Nigeria are still baffled how copies of Nigeria’s 2016 budget have gone missing at the country’s parliament.

Hundreds of copies have disappeared, an MP who requested anonymity told the BBC, causing the senate not to start considering the proposed budget because of the missing documentation.National-Assembly-Building

Some opposition senators have reacted angrily to the news of the missing documents, accusing the government of being behind their disappearance, Nigeria’s Premium Times newspaper reports.

But Mr Buhari’s spokesman Garba Shehu denied the allegation, saying: “Once the budget is submitted, it ceases to be our property.”

Both houses are expected to take about two months to consider the $31bn (£20.8bn) budget.
