Senate Receives Signed Copy Of 2013 Budget From Jonathan

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.”

2013 Range Rover Sold Out For The Next Six Months

Range Rover announced that their latest model, the N13 Million-and-up 2013 Range Rover is sold out for the next six months to a year in the United States, the automakers biggest market. Despite shortages of the luxury SUV, Automotive News reports that Land Rover expects 2013 sales will outnumber 2012's 43,664-unit total.

Buyers can order one now - but even celebrities will have to wait until next year to sit behind the wheel.According to Range Rover, the United States is their biggest market and New York is the biggest single city in the world for sales. (It must be because of all those steep hills and muddy streams in Manhattan.) But only the early birds will be able to run the new model to the farmer’s market.
