2018 Budget: National Assembly Receives Appropriation Commitee’s Report

The report was submitted at both chambers of the National Assembly, the Senate and House of Representatives.

At the Senate, Danjuma Goje, chairman Senate committee on appropriations submitted the report.

 

In November 2017, President Muhammadu Buhari presented an N8.6 trillion 2018 budget before a joint session of the National Assembly.
The bill’s passage was however delayed by the National Assembly as it accused Ministries, Departments and Agencies(MDAs) of failing to submit details of budget proposal and their refusal to make appearances beforerelevant committees.

The MDAs in reaction had accused the federal lawmakers of demanding bribes as conditions for passing the 2018 budget.

The report is expected to undergo deliberations by the lawmakers before the end of the week. The deliberation is expected to be duly followed by the approval of the budget.
