House Speaker, Dogaga Describes ‘stolen’ Budget Speculation As An ‘award Winning April Fool Stunt’
SAN FRANCISCO, January 12, (THEWILL) – The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara Tuesday night described news reports suggesting that the proposed 2016 budget estimates of the federal government had been stolen as “an award winning April Fool stunt'.
In multiple tweets in reaction to queries on the alleged theft of the document, Dogara said the budget proposal presented by President Muhammadu Buhari was in the custody of the Clerk of the House.
THEWILL had previously reported that our correspondents at the Assembly saw hundreds of copies of the document at the lobby-entrance of the Assembly possibly awaiting distribution to federal legislators.
