SOME members of the House of Representatives have expressed apprehension that with the alleged poor implementation of the 2016 budget, there was the possibility that the 2017 budget implementation could suffer the same fate.

Speaking to ReportersAtLarge correspondent ahead of the presentation of the budget estimate today, the member representing Amuwo Odofin Federal Constituency of Lagos State on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Oghene Egoh, said the 2016 budget performance was less than 30 percent and expressed the doubt that there would be any remarkable improvement in 2017 budget.

Also speaking, member representing Ukwa Federal Constituency of Abia State and Chairman House Committee on Petitions, Usoma Nkem-Abonta, said the problem with the budget in the country was lack of interface between the executive and the legislature.
