By Ikenga Chronicles June 20, 2018

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday afternoon finally signed the 2018 appropriation bill into law, by accepting a N14.5billion increase to the budget of the National Assembly.

In his speech during the signing of the budget, the President revealed that several aspects of the budget was tampered with by the National Assembly, who reduced the amount allotted to some projects and included some for themselves.

Buhari also pointed out that the National Assembly increased its budget by N14.5billion.

According to Buhari,

“Another area of concern is the increase by @nassnigeria of the provisions for Statutory Transfers by an aggregate of 73.96 billion Naira. Most of these increases are for recurrent expenditure at a time we are trying to keep down the cost of governance.

“An example of this increase is the budget of the National Assembly itself which has increased by 14.5 billion Naira, from 125 billion Naira to 139.5 billion Naira without any discussion with the Executive.”

Recall that a few months ago, when former Coordinating Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala revealed that the government of former President Goodluck Jonathan had to concede to an about N14billion increment to the budget of the National Assembly to get the 2015 budget passed, President Buhari’s handlers such as Festus Keyamo and Lauretta Onochie had gone to town asserting that the said N14billion was bribery paid by the Jonathan administration, and vowed that it will never happen under Buhari.

Now that President Buhari has done the same thing, observers are saying that it also amounts to the President bribing the National Assembly.
