President Muhammadu Buhari has assured that he would build a mutual working relationship with the 9th National Assembly.
The President, who spoke in Daura, Katsina State, on Monday, explained that such a relationship would smoothen governance and particularly improve the budgetary process in the country.
Recall that, the 8th Assembly had started on a shaky note over the perceived ‘wrong’ choice of its leadership, particularly the emergence of Senator Bukola Saraki as the President of the Nigerian Senate.
He added that one thing he hoped to achieve quickly with the next legislature was to return the budgetary process to the January-December fiscal cycle.
Nigeria now runs a near June-June budget cycle, owing to delays often caused by executive-legislature power struggle.
