Buhari sacks Nigeria's budget director

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked the director general of the government’s budget office, Yahaya Gusau, over his handling of the current budget proposal.

He has been in the job for six months.

This comes after several questions being raised over the 2016 budget which the president announced at the end of last year.

There have been accusations that some ministries inflated their budget allocations.

Mr Gusau has been replaced by Tijjani Abdullahi.
