The House of Representatives has resolved to review the controversial 2016 budget.
This is contrary to the position of the Senate that foreclosed a revisit of the document.
The decision was announced by the Speaker, Mr. Yakubu Dogara after a two hour executive session where various opinions were said to have been raised.
Mr. Dogara said the decision of the House was necessitated by the prevailing economic situation facing the country.
Speaker Dogara said that in view of the prevailing economic situation and in the interest of the people, the House of Representatives has resolved to reexamine the budget with a view of ironing out any differences with the executive.
He said this is for the overall interest of the country in order to have a workable budget that is implementable.”
