Buhari Sets Up Committee to Raise Funds For 2017 Budget

President Muhammadu Buhari has set up a committee that will devise ways the country can raise funds in order to support the funding of the 2017 budget.

Minister of Budget and National Planning, Udoma Udo Udoma, disclosed this at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Monday during the public presentation of the 2017 budget proposals.

He said the government would challenge revenue generating agencies, especially the Federal Inland Revenue Service and the Nigerian Customs Service to improve their efficiency and broaden their reach so as to achieve the targets set for them in the 2017 budget.
