Mr. Jonathan was billed to address a joint session of the House of Representatives and Senate, on his administration’s planned spending for 2014.Goodluck-Jonathan-

The presentation was to hold last week Tuesday but was rescheduled by a week. The House of Representatives said the decision last week was due to its non-passage of the Medium Term Expenditure Framework sent in by the president ahead of budget presentation.

No reason has been given for the latest decision. Media committees of the two Houses are expected to officially provide details later.

But some staff of the assembly say the session was called off amid reported plans by some lawmakers -mainly from the Abubakar Baraje faction of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party – to disrupt the president’s presentation
