Committee on appropriation submits 2020 budget report

*Senate president, Mr. Ahmad Lawan

The senate on Wednesday received the report of the 2020 budget from its Committee on Appropriation.

Chairman of the committee, Mr. Barau Jibrin, laid the report of the N10.33 trillion budget at the plenary.

The lawmakers will review the recommendations of the report on another legislative day before passing the budget.

It would be recalled that the budget was due for submission last Tuesday, November 18 but the lawmakers extended its consideration and passage by one week.

It would also be recalled that the chairman had asked for more time to present the final report.

He said the committee had collated all the reports of the sub-committees and analysed them.

The senate president, Mr. Ahmad Lawan, thereafter, gave the committee an additional week to finalise legislative work.

It would be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari had on October 8 presented the N10.33 trillion budget proposal to a joint session of the national assembly.
