 Dogara: Budget Impasse’ll Be Resolved

dogaraHouse of Representatives Speaker Yakubu Dogara has said the impasse over the budget will be resolved.
Dogara spoke while receiving a delegation of All Progressives Congress (APC) elders and stakeholders from Kwande/Oshongo Federal Constituency of Benue State in the National Assembly.
House spokesperson Abdulrazak Namdas, at a news conference with reporters yesterday, confirmed that the House received a letter from the Presidency listing the areas of contention.
Dogara said: “As we speak to you, I know that the executive has sent their observations on the budget, areas they termed ‘grey areas’. We’ve taken delivery of that document. We are looking into it and in collaboration with the Senate, the entire National Assembly, we have arrived at a decision which I will not announce here because that one is for the ears of Mr President only.
“It is in the overall national interest; we know that we have to find a solution and sooner than later, within this week, I believe that as leaders, having put on our thinking caps, we should be able to come up with a solution that will address this problem.
Namdas declined to reveal the grey areas.
