Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, Ilorin

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”.
