The House of Representatives has enjoined Ministries, Department and Agencies (MDAs) of the federal government to desist from tampering with the 2020 budget.

The Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriation, Mr Muktar Aliyu Betara issued the warning in a statement in Abuja following the submission of the revised 2020 budget proposal by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The House noted that no MDA has powers to tinker with the budget as only the National Assembly is statutorily empowered to review, adjust, consider and pass the budget.
