Despite Late Signing, FG Promises Full Implementation of 2016 BudgetFeatured, Latest News, News Sunday, May 8th, 2016
BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Federal Government aims, and will be working, to achieve 100 per cent implementation of the 2016 budget in spite of the late signing of the 2016 Appropriation Bill.
This clarification becomes necessary to clear the misrepresentation by some newspapers that full implementation of the budget has been ruled out because of the late start.
Responding to a question from State House correspondents who sought to find out whether, given the late approval of the Budget, it would still be possible to achieve 100% implementation, the Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udoma Udo Udoma, conceded that the late approval might constrain full implementation, nevertheless the Federal Government intends to still try its best to achieve 100% implementation.
At no time did the Minister rule out the possibility of full implementation as indicated by one or two newspapers.
