The senate has postponed the 2013 budget presentation by PresidentGoodluck Jonathan to next week.
The Senate President, Senator David Mark who announced this on the floor of the senate did not state a particular day but promised to communicate to senators any day that may be agreed upon by the leadership of the National Assembly.
President Goodluck Jonathan had earlier signified his intention to present the 2013 budget proposal to the joint session of the National Assembly on the 4th of October.
Correspondent Tijani Yinusa gathered that this was frustrated by members of the House of Representatives who insisted that they must see an improvement in the implementation of 2012 budget before allowing the President Jonathan to lay the 2013 budget.
In the meantime, senate has temporarily stood down the request of President Goodluck Jonathan for the approval of 7.9 billion dollars for pipeline projects.
Senate Leader Victor Ndoma-Egba during plenary appealed that the request which comes under the Medium Term External Borrowing Plan (2012-2014) be kept aside until they get appropriate briefing from the executive.
