Lawmakers To Receive 2019 Budget Next Week
President Muhammadu Buhari will present a draft of the 2019 budget to a joint sitting of the National Assembly next week Wednesday.
This information was contained in a letter addressed by the President to the lawmakers in which he informed them of his intention to lay the budget before the lawmakers next week.
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, read the letter during house plenary on Thursday.
This lays to rest the current trading of words between the executive and the legislature on which arm of government is delaying the process on the 2019 budget.
Recall that as reported by Naija News, President Buhari presided over a special session of the Federal Executive Council last week Friday where the details of the budget were finalized and approved by council members.
