 “Nobody, except the president, can withdraw the budget. As far as we know, he (the president) has not done that. The copies in their hundreds have been delivered to both chambers of the National Assembly. 

“By tradition, once the budget is submitted, it ceases to be our property.  Enquiries as to where it is should be directed to the appropriate quarters”, Shehu said.
