The Minister of Budget and National Planning, Udoma Udo Udoma, on Wednesday said there is no date yet in sight for President Muhammadu Buhari to assent the 2016 Budget.
According to him, talks on the grey areas in the budget are still in progress.
He spoke with State House correspondents at the end of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in Abuja.
He said: “On the 2016 Budget, we are still talking.
“On the expectation that we will soon have a budget, the monitoring and evaluation mechanism are designed to make sure that the budget delivers what it promises. That mechanism was looked at by the Federal Executive Council (FEC) and approved.”
