Nigerians may experience late passage of the 2017 Budget as Senator Danjuma Goje on Wednesday told the upper legislative house that the budget documents, including 18 files, laptop and other valuable items have been declared missing.

Goje, who is serving as the Chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriations, told the upper chamber that the report on the 2017 Appropriation Bill has been stalled by the recent raid on his Abuja home by Policemen.

The Senator, while lamenting the raid, said processes on the 2017 Budget had been put on hold since the Policemen invaded his house and took the documents.

He apologised to the Senate and Nigerians for the delay in the passage of the budget.

While reacting to the matter the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki ‎expressed concern over the missing documents.

An Adhoc Committee was set up to investigate the matter within four weeks and report to the Senate.

‎Plans by the government of President Muhammadu Buhari to draw the Nigerian economy out of recession through the 2017 Budget may have hit the rocks as a result of this development.
