When pressed to mention part of the budget which the House was not satisfied with, the lawmaker who represent Obubra/Etung federal constituency said:
“The House is yet to appraise the 2013 budget sector by sector to be able to give details of the analysis. However like I said, the budget performance was low and was not up to their expectations and bench mark agreed with the executive.
