Alhaji Ado Alhassan Doguwa, the Chairman of the Northern Caucus in the House of Representatives, has refuted reports that President Bola Tinubu presented an empty budget box during his budget presentation.

In a statement titled “Stop the Misrepresentation of Facts: We Did Not Receive Empty 2024 Budget Box from President Tinubu,” Doguwa clarified that such speculation is unfounded.

According to Doguwa, President Tinubu had actually submitted a flash drive containing the entire budget prior to his presentation to the joint chambers. He explained that the budget is currently being printed out in hard copies, and the President brought a single hard copy of the budget to the floor for reference.

Doguwa emphasized that both senators and members of the House of Representatives were satisfied with the verbal presentation and the detailed analysis provided by President Tinubu regarding the allocated funds for different sectors of the economy. He dismissed any claims of empty boxes being laid before the National Assembly as untrue and baseless.

The chairman further attributed such reports to mischief-makers and opposition members who criticize the government without reasonable cause. He urged Nigerians to disregard these insinuations and condemn those responsible, as they hinder Nigeria’s progress.

Doguwa concluded by confirming that the House Committee on Petroleum Upstream, which he chairs, will commence budget defense for the agencies under its supervision in the coming week.
