Nine days to the end of the year, Minister of  Sports, Mr. Solomon Dalung, has said that his ministry has yet to receive its 2016 budget.

He spoke in Abuja at  the Special Edition of Town Hall Meeting series dedicated to  youths.

The event, which was held at the Presidential Villa, was attended by other six ministers.

Dalung, however, said that President Muhammadu Buhari had  been augmenting the spending of the ministry.

He  said there were plans to send a supplementary budget to the National Assembly.

Buhari only last week submitted the  2017 Appropriation Bill to the National Assembly for consideration.

The National Assembly, which has gone on break, is expected to begin work on the budget when it resumes on January 10, 2017.
