The Minister of Budget and Planning, Udoma Udo Udoma, has said the Federal Government may review the 2016 budget. Udoma, who spoke yesterday at a Town Hall meeting in Abuja, noted that the disparity between projected revenue and actual receipts in the last two quarters was obvious. Udoma said the budget signed by the president was well scrutinised and passed the due process of appropriation in the National Assembly before it was signed into law in May. In his words, ‘‘We did not assent padded budget. The budget followed through the various stages of preparation and scrutiny and appropriation before it was signed into law.’’ Meanwhile the minister said the Federal Government had released N331.5billion as part of capital allocation of the budget to key ministries covering sectors that will turn around the economy. The minister said the 2017 Budget would be submitted to the National Assembly in October.
