EXTRA: Police may be working on the 2017 budget, says Goje

Danjuma Goje, chairman of the senate appropriation committee, says the police may be working on the 2017 budget.

He said this in reaction to the invasion of his Abuja residence.

At least 40 policemen stormed his house on Thursday, carting away some monies.

Speaking at the senate on Wednesday, Goje accused the police of hijacking the budget during the raid.

He said the development could delay passage of the appropriation bill.

“I don’t know if the police are now working on the budget. They have hijacked the budget. We will manage to pass this budget but don’t blame us if it is delayed,” he said.

Work on the budget had reached an advanced stage, and there were plans to deliberate on it this week.

Goje, who is the senator representing Gombe central, was governor of Gombe from 2003 to 2011.
