Saraki expresses doubt on 2014 budget
The chairman, Senate committee on Environment and Ecology, Senator Bukola Saraki, has expressed doubt over the implementation of the 2014 budget passed by the Senate on Wednesday, saying the appropriation bill contained some lacunae. Saraki in a statement noted that the budget did not consider fluctuations in oil production. He said, “The Appropriation Act we passed did not consider a valuable indicator of our revenue base- oil production variation. In other words, our national budget is predicated on oil production and price”.
