The Presidency, on Wednesday, lauded the National Assembly for passing the 2016 budget into law.
The Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Sen. Ita Enang, commended the Senate and House committees on appropriation as well as the sub-committees for ensuring that the budget was passed.
Enang also praised the media for extensive coverage of the process which led to the passage of the budget.
“I followed the entire process and I have seen the industry that has been exhibited by the senators.
“I want to say that we appreciate particularly the fact that in the course of consideration, the committee chairmen, the committee members and the chairmen of appropriation committees were in constant touch,’’ he said.
