Senate may pass Fg’s N895.8b supplementary budget tomorrow



PRESIDENT of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has said that the upper chamber would consider President Muhammadu Buhari’s N895.842 billion supplementary budget request, tomorrow.

  Lawan stated this today during plenary after the Senate received the report of the Committee on Appropriation on the Supplementary Appropriation Bill, 2021.

  National Assembly watchers said consideration of the request by Senate was an indication that the supplementary budget would be passed tomorrow.

  It will be recalled that Chairman of Senate Appropriation Committee, Jibrin Barau, had last week, pleaded with the upper chamber to allow the Joint Committees of the Senate and House of Representatives come up with a harmonised report on the supplementary appropriations bill to facilitate its eventual presentation today (Tuesday).
