Members of the Senate at the plenary today criticised the 2018 Appropriation Bill presented to the National Assembly by President Muhammadu Buhari.

At the resumption of Legislative proceedings, Senators complained that the 2018 budget was filled with inaccuracies, budget padding and inconsistencies.

The Senate is maintaining that it cannot complete work on the 2018 budget in January as requested by the Executive.
