Abstract


The paper examines the executive-legislature relations within the framework of the budget process. The paper is fundamentally structured on democratic presidentialism that necessitates the necessity of the application of the doctrine of separation of powers and principle of checks and balances which emphasized that despite all these, executive-legislature acrimony is given where each institution of governance comes into conflict with one another in discharging their constitutional responsibilities. Consequently, the paper concludes that, cooperation between and among these institutions though desirable but equally necessary in achieving effective budgetary process in the Nigeria’s democratic governance
