Indications emerged yesterday that the National Assembly has re-presented a newly repackaged 2016 Appropriation Bill to President Muhammadu Buhari.

It was gathered that the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Sulaimon Yusuf Lasun submitted the repackaged budget to the two Presidential liaison officers to the president: Suleiman Kawu Sumaila of the House of Reps and Senator Ita Enang of the Senate.

Lasun, who headed the conciliatory committee on the budget was billed to address reporters on the development in Hearing Room One of the House of Representatives wing but had to call it off for inexplicable reasons at about 1.30 pm yesterday.
