The Senate today confirmed receipt of the signed 2013 budget from President Goodluck Jonathan.
Senate Spokesman Enyinnaya Abaribe, who confirmed this to journalists in Abuja, said copies of the signed budget were already with all the senators.
Abaribe, who noted that the president was yet to seek an amendment to the budget, however assured that should he do so, the Senate would work on it.
He said within the next few days, all the senators would critically look at the details of the signed budget to be sure that it is in tandem with the one passed by the National Assembly.
According to Abaribe, “every budget is an organic system which means that necessarily, there will be corrections and those corrections come through another appropriation bill that will be sent as a supplementary bill. That is the only way I know that an amendment of the budget can be done. If we get such a supplementary bill, we are going to work with it.”
