Nigeria’s Senate President, Bukola Saraki, will today lead other senators to a very important meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari. the major aim of the meeting is to find a lasting solution to the 2016 Appropriation Bill headache.
The meeting which was earlier slated for last Friday, was postponed because one of the personalities key to the meeting was out of town.
Others expected to attend the meeting are Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu; Senate Leader, Ali Ndume; Deputy Senate Leader, Ibn Na’Allah; Chief Whip, Senator Olusola Adeyeye and Senate Deputy Chief Whip, Senator Francis Alimikhena.

Others include Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio; Deputy Minority Leader, Emmanuel Bwacha; Minority Whip, Senator Philip Aduda, and Senate Deputy and Minority Whip, Senator Biodun Olujimi.
Also, at the meeting are members of Appropriation and Finance Committees of the two arms of the National Assembly.
The Presidency is highly disappointed with the manner the 2016 budget sent by the executive was distorted, with figures allocated to projects reduced, thereby making it difficult for the government to perform if the budget was assented to by the President.
