President Muhammadu Buhari has said the adjustment of the budget by the national assembly might affect its smooth implementation.

President Buhari who stated this while signing the budget at the president’s mini conference room, presidential villa, Abuja said the addition of about N90bn to the N8.83trn he submitted to the legislature would make it difficult for government to realize its set objectives.

He, however, stated that the executive arm of government would hold a dialogue with the forthcoming ninth national assembly so as to make life better for the generality of Nigerians.

According to the president, his administration will look at how to improve the budget process in order to speed up its consideration as well as return the country to the January to December fiscal year timetable.

He appreciated the ministers of budget and national planning, finance, the budget office of the federation and all other stakeholders that played key roles in producing the document.
