2018 Budget Is A Piece Of Fiction: Senator Abaribe States

The 2018 buget is currently under deliberation and lawmakers seem to be divided along party lines with APC Senators seeking a quick passage and PDP Senators kicking against it.

Senate leader Ahmad Lawan, and Sen Eyinnaya Abaribe have disagreed over the issue. Abaribe who was first to speak described the budget as ' a piece of fiction'.

Abaribe was challenged by Sen. Lawan who challenged his choice of words.  He said it was not right for Abaribe to describe a document submitted by the President himself as ' a piece of fiction'.

Another lawmaker from Gombe State, Sen. Joshua Lidani said the budget was dead on arrival, he described the budget as being built on quick sand.

The lawmakers are still on the matter.
