2016 Budget Crisis: Why Nigerians should not blame Buhari – Gbajabiamila

Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila
Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila, has appealed to Nigerians not to blame President Muhammadu Buhari for the 2016 budget controversy, but to hold civil servants liable.
Speaking at his office in Abuja while receiving leaders of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Gbajabiamila said, “I’m going to absolve the President, but I’m not going to absolve the people that put it in.

Why I absolved the President, I will tell you.

“The job was done by civil servants, it has always been done by them.

“The President does not sit in a ministry, he doesn’t know what’s going on there or what they need or do not need.

“The argument will be that the buck stops at his desk and he must take responsibility, I agree with that.

But the point is that he delegated responsibilities.

Under the constitution, he has the right to delegate his work to ministers.

And he delegated the issue of budget and planning to the minister of Budget and Planning,” Gbajabiamila said.
