The Presidency has once again refuted the claims in some quarters that President Muhammadu Buhari has withdrawn the 2016 Budget from the National Assembly.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, while reacting to the report insisted that the budget was still in custody of the national assembly.

Shehu said the executive arm of government delivered copies of the budget in hundreds to the two chambers of the National Assembly, adding that they were still with them.


The presidential spokesman said the document had ceased being the property of the executive the moment Buhari presented it to the National Assembly.

He said, ?Nobody except the President can withdraw the budget.

?As far as we know, he hasn?t done that.

?The copies in their hundreds have been delivered to both chambers of the National Assembly.


?By tradition, once the budget is submitted, it ceases to be our property.

?Enquiries as to where it is should be directed to the appropriate quarters,? he added.
