The Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly Matters, Senator Joy Emordi, while admitting that there are areas of disappointment between the Executive and the Legislature, has however assured the disagreements will not in anyway affect the implementation of the 2013 budget.

Emordi, who met with President Goodluck Jonathan in the Presidential Villa, denied that the tension between both arms of government might rubbish the advantage of the quickest passage of the budget by the National Assembly since 1999, if not quickly resolved.

"But you know that even husband and wife do have disagreements. There is no way that you cannot expect the two arms of government not to disagree, but the most important thing is how they deal with the issues at the end of the day. And you can see that in most of the issues, even after the disagreements, they always resort to dialogue and come to one position that will be acceptable to all in the interest of the nation”

On complaints by the Legislature about President’s refusal to ascent to bills and implement resolution passed by them, Emordi disclosed that though these issues exist, the underlying reason is to promote what is best in the interest of the nation.

“There is no problems between the Executive and Legislature, they are all working for the people of Nigeria. So let us forget about the hypes. There must be issues, but the most important thing is that they are working for the common interest of Nigerians. On the resolutions, yes, there might be issues but at the end of the day those issues were also resolved or are in the process of being resolved”

There must be issues, but the most important thing is that they are working for the common interest of Nigerians. On the resolutions, yes, there might be issues but at the end of the day those issues were also resolved or are in the process of being resolved” she said.

Asked when the budget will be signed, she simply said “very Soon, I can assure you that it will be signed soon".

On what is holding the budget, she said, “Just the details. You know, details of the budget are usually very bulky. We need to get the details, once the details are sent to Mr. President, he will have to study it first as nobody will just expect him to sign. They are just binding it”.

Emordi noted that the early passage of the 2013 budget was a clear indication that future relationships between the Legislature and the Executive will continue to be better adding that “this harmonious relationship between the Executive and Legislature will be sustained in 2013”.

It will be recalled that when President Jonathan presented the budget to the joint session of the National Assembly, the Executive had proposed a crude oil benchmark of $75 per barrel, the National Assembly later passed a harmonised budget in which they eventually settled for $79 per barrel.
