The Nigerian Senate has jerked up the 2019 budget by over 100 billion naira.

The upper legislative chambers on Tuesday passed a sum of N8.916 trillion as the budget for the 2019 fiscal year as against the N8.83 trillion proposed by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Naija News reports that the new budget figure was passed after Danjuma Goje, chairman senate committee on appropriations, presented a report on the floor of the upper legislative chamber.

The figure is higher than what Buhari presented a joint session on December 19 by N86 billion.
