Okonjo-Iweala presents N4.3tn 2015 federal budget to N’Assembly
Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has just presented the 2015 budget estimates of about N4.3trillion before the National Assembly.
She laid the document in separate appearances before the Senate and the House of Representatives.
There was not a joint sitting of the two chambers as has been the tradition, as President Goodluck Jonathan already delegated Okonjo-Iweala to present the estimates on his behalf.
The Coordinating Minister of the Economy came to National Assembly with a retinue of other ministers and the Director-General, Budget Office of the Federation, Dr. Bright Okogu.
No speeches were made during the ceremony, which was quite brief.
