A couple of days to the end of the year, Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung, says his ministry has yet to receive its twenty-sixteen budget.
Dalung who spoke at the Special Edition of Town Hall Meeting series dedicated to youths, which was held at the Presidential Villa, in Abuja yesterday, said that President Muhammadu Buhari had been augmenting the spending of the ministry.
In his word, he said there were plans to send a supplementary budget to the National Assembly.
Meanwhile, Buhari only last week submitted the twenty-seventeen Appropriation Bill to the National Assembly for consideration.
Dalung blamed the challenges facing the sports sector on zero budgeting in twenty-sixteen.
