Senate to pass 2021 budget on Monday

Senate to pass 2021 budget on Monday (Updated: Wednesday, 16th December 2020, 09:08 PM)


President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan has said it will hold a special session on Dec. 21 to consider and pass the 2021 appropriation bill,

Lawan said this during Wednesday’s plenary following a motion by Senate Leader, Yahaya Abdullahi and seconded by Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe.

According to him, the delay in the passage of the budget is to allow the Appropriation Committee include a late request for additional expenditure from the Executive.

“The Committee on Appropriation has been working round the clock. We had planned to receive the report today (Wednesday), but there was a late request for additional expenditure from the Executive Arm of Government.

“And we want to ensure that our committee does work to produce a clean document, so it can’t present the document today.

“However, the committee has said that the report will be ready by weekend. Consequently, we will hold a special session on Monday, Dec. 21 to consider and pass the 2021 budget.

“This is in keeping with our legislative agenda of ensuring that the annual budget has a January to December cycle. We did that in 2019, and by the grace of God, we will do it again,” NAN quoted him as saying.
