Senate President Bukola Saraki was at the
state house Abuja yesterday where he had
a closed door meeting with President

correspondents after his meeting, Saraki
disclosed that the 2017 budget which was
approved by the Federal Executive Council
on Wednesday November 30th, will be
presented to a joint session of the National
Assembly within the next 10 days.
“Well, I haven’t seen the details, not until
the president lays it. I am sure within the
next 10 days, it will be presented. We are
ready. Once the document comes to us, we
are ready. I think this time around, a lot of
work has taken place behind the scene.
There is a lot of more collaboration and
you will see the result of that in the time
frame it will take after the president will
have presented it.”he said
