GEJ Impeachement Update: FG retracts 56% budget implementation claim, Okonjo-Iweala’s absence at session enrages Deputy Senate President
August 1, 2012 in Nigerian Current Affairs
The Federal Government has retracted an earlier claim by government that it has achieved 56 per cent implementation of the 2012 budget.
The retraction is contained in documents submitted to the Senate Committee on Appropriations by officials of the finance ministry during an interactive session called by the Senate on Tuesday. The officials were not allowed to make any presentation because of the absence of Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
