Acute Budget Disagreement in Nigeria

The rift between the Presidency and the House of Representatives over the 2009 Appropriation Act assumed a new dimension yesterday as lawmakers in the green chamber of the National Assembly shunned an invitation extended to them from the Presidency to discuss the implementation of the troubled budget.

The House has, however, restrained itself from making good its threat to commence the impeachment proceedings against President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua.

House spokesman, Hon. Eseme Eyiboh, disclosed yesterday that the House was bidding its time to allow for some constructive engagements and would only deploy the impeachment instrument as a "last resort".
