President Muhammadu Buhari, on Friday, November 25, said he will safeguard the 2017 proposed budget, sent to the Senate for consideration, in a bid to avoid it being padded.
The development is coming at a time when the Upper Legislative Chamber, had vowed to rewrite the 2017 budget, as the copy earlier submitted by the Executive, was best described as empty.
According to the Senate, ‎the projections in the documents were unrealistic, not truthful ,and fraudulent, even though it said the Presidency had fixed December 1, 2016, for the official presentation of the 2017 Appropriation Bill, to the Legislature.
‎‎In a bid not to steer up the polity between the Legislative, and the Executive, the Senate however, unanimously agreed to rewrite the 2017 budget, making each projection feasible with the present economic realities.
Meanwhile, President Buhari, reacting to the Senate, on Friday, through his Special Adviser ‎on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina‎, said he would never allow “rogue projects and figures”, to be injected into the financial document again under his watch.
‎He said, “‎I am waiting for the 2017 budget to be brought to us in council.
“Any sign of padding anywhere, I will remove it,” Buhari said.


Speaking further, he said ‎that since 1975 that he had been holding public offices, such as Military Governor, Minister of Petroleum Resources, Head of State, and Chairman of the Petroleum Trust Fund, he has never heard about budget padding up, until 2016, when he prepared his first budget as a civilian President.
He promised that such distortions in the budget would never happen under his watch.
‎He reiterated that his government stands by its campaign promises of securing the country, reviving the economy, and fighting corruption.
On the violence that rocked the rerun election ‎in Kogi, Bayelsa, and Rivers states, he promised to re-write the wrongs, as ‎he had no business being in office, if his government could not guarantee credible elections.
He said, ‎”I agonised over the elections in Kogi, Bayelsa, and Rivers States.
“We should have passed the stage in which people are beheaded, and killed, because of who occupies certain offices,” the President added.
‎On his anti-corruption cases before the courts, Buhari said he believed the cleansing currently going on, “will lead to a better judiciary”.
“When people are sentenced, Nigerians will believe that we are serious with the anti-corruption war,” Buhari said.
