Buhari Appoints New DG Budget office

Chris Steven, Abuja
President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of his Special Adviser on Planning, Mr Ben Akabueze as the new Director General of the Budget Office of the Federation.
It would be recalled that the erstwhile DG Budget Office, Mr. Yahaya Fussy, was sacked following the budget padding scandal that embarrassed the Buhari administration.
The new DG Budget, Mr. Akabueze takes over from Tijani Mohammed Abdullahi who has been acting but will now serve as Special Adviser to the President on Planning and will continue to work with the Minister of Budget and National Planning.
Mr Akabueze and Abdullahi joined the Ministry of Budget and National Planning in February this year.
