The presidency has spoken out about the missing 2016 budget which is currently sparking controversy in Nigeria.

Following the controversy that has trailed the reportedly missing 2016 Budget presented to the joint session of the National Assembly on Tuesday, December 22, 2015 by President Muhammadu Buhari, the Presidency, on Tuesday night, distanced itself from the event.

Disturbed by the raging enquiries posed by Nigerians on social media following the news of the missing budget, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, defended the Presidency, noting that President Buhari has not withdrawn the budget as speculated in the media.

Shehu in a series of tweets via his Twitter handle @GarShehu said:

Enquiries about the budget: Nobody except the President can withdraw the budget. As far as we know, he hasn’t done that

"The copies in their hundreds have been delivered to both chambers of the National Assembly.

“By tradition, once the budget is submitted, it ceases to be our property.

"Enquiries as to where it is should be directed to the appropriate quarters,”
