The Federal Executive Council will meet in emergency today over the 2016 budget details submitted to President Muhammadu Buhari by the National Assembly yesterday, DailyTrust gathered.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu disclosed to source yesterday evening.
Another top government official said yesterday that the details of the budget would be forwarded to all ministers between yesterday and today for a review.
The source, who craved anonymity, also confirmed that the executive would go through the details of the budget, see the corrections and take steps on implementation.
“Between today (yesterday) and tomorrow (today), the budget details will be forwarded to the ministers to start reviewing and seeing the corrections and also taking steps on how to implement them. They want to do things based on facts, not lies,” he said.
President Muhammadu Buhari had last week insisted that he would critically review the Appropriation Bill before assenting to it.
