Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin, , Chairman Committee on Appropriation of the House of Representatives this morning disclosed that the executive do not really know what is contained in the 2016 budget.

Speaking on CHANNELS TV, Jibrin said, “The whole responsibility was taken away from the budget office. A task force was set up to prepare a budget headed by a Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of budget and that task force was powered by the consultant that was brought in to implement the zero budgeting system.

“At the end of the day, the poor Director General of the budget office was sacrificed, used as a scapegoat. Now they want to use the National Assembly as a second scapegoat and we are saying no. You can’t use us. We are not part of it.

“You created all the confusion there. We have helped you to manage it but again, when you try to drag us into that, we are not going to accept it”.
