A Nigerian human rights group; Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice, (CHRSJ) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to conduct a thorough investigation on the remote cause of the missing 2016 budget.
Recall that the 2016 Appropriation Bill presented by President Muhammadu Buhari on December 22, 2015 was declared missing by the national assembly this week.
Charging the federal government to tell Nigerians the whereabouts of the budget, the group gave 48 hours ultimatum to the authority concerned to return the original hard and soft copies of the 2016 Appropriation Bill for proper deliberation by the National Assembly.
The group which made this call in a statement issued and signed by its Executive Chairman, Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman alleged that the President must have submitted an empty box to the National Assembly during the recent presentation of the Budget to the lawmakers at the National Assembly complex.
Comrade Sulaiman said, “It was unbelievable for the document to be missing in the National Assembly that is charged with the responsibility of making the 2016 Budget into law before expenditure in the current fiscal year.”
The rights activist noted that it was a shame on the part of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC for not being able to track their purported ‘Budget of Change’ before disappearance from the National Assembly, describing the act of conspiracy as barbaric, illegal, unlawful, ungodly, anti-masses, aberration, anathema and abomination which was a crime against humanity.
