I hope he keeps to his words this time and it does not come with the many “padding’ wahala that trailed the last one.
“The budget has been approved by the Federal Executive Council and the details of course will be revealed when the President presents the budget to the National Assembly. The President will be communicating to the National Assembly and of course it will be at the National Assembly’s discretion ultimately. The President will write to them. It is after the confirm that the president can go to address them”he said
