The senate has described the Medium Term expenditure Framework MTEF sent to it by the executive as completely empty and not worthy of its consideration.
In case you did not know, the MTEF and fiscal strategy paper is a document that is a prelude to the presentation of the 2017 budget.
The 2017 version was sent to the senate on September 30.
But the Upper House has not been able to debate it because according to senators, it lacked enough information to form a debate.
Senate Leader ALI NDUME who opened the criticism against the document accused Minister of Budget and National Planning UDOMA UDO UDOMA of incompetence.
In his reaction, Senate President BUKOLA SARAKI called for a stop to the blame game and disclosed that UDO UDOMA had denied snubbing senate summons.
