The Presidency on Monday assured that the Muhammadu Buhari administration will fulfill its promise of providing open and transparent leadership for the country. The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, made the remark while speaking on the decision of the government to submit the budget proposals for Ministries, Department and Agencies (MDAs) to the National Assembly for consideration.
He said the decision to send the MDAs budget to the National Assembly was in line with the President’s desire to offer a more accountable and transparent leadership for the country. He said: “The laying of budgets for the MDAs, particularly those regarding the Central Bank and the NNPC behemoth is clearly unprecedented. The President is determined to make the budgeting more transparent and more participative.
“It is all part of the re-engineering of the entire processes of government for the benefit of the ordinary citizens.”
