The hard and soft copies of the 2016 budget documents President Muhammadu Buhari handed over to the National Assembly on December 22, 2015, have been declared missing, according to  Premium Times Nigeria,

The Nigerian Senate was scheduled to commence deliberation on the proposed budget Tuesday 12 January but Senate Leader, Ali Ndume, told lawmakers at a closed-door session that the budget document is stolen.

Unnamed source told the Premium Times that deliberation on the budget could therefore not begin until fresh copies of the documents were obtained from the presidency, the Ministry of Finance or that of national planning.

The Chairman, Senate Committee of Appropriation, Danjuma Goje, was subsequently mandated to lead a search for the documents and liaise with the Presidency, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, Ita Enang, and the National Planning ministry on the matter.

The senators it was learnt agreed that the matter should be kept secret, noting that making it public could embarrass the Presidency, the National Assembly and the country.

However, some Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senators have accused the Presidency of colluding with the management of the National Assembly to quietly withdraw the documents after detecting some discrepancies in the budget proposal.
