The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, on Friday said Nigeria’s annual appropriation bill would be passed in three months under his leadership.
He spoke to newsmen after performing Friday’s Juma’at prayer at the State House, Abuja. Lawan, however, said to achieve this, the executive and the legislature must work together.
The Senate President assured that if presented in September ending or early October, the budget would be passed before the December break.
“A month would be set aside for budget defense by MDAs”, Lawan added, warning that Senate not tolerate any delay by government parastatals.
Meanwhile, the 9th Senate had resolved to write an official letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, informing him that a quorum of the Senate had assembled and that its presiding officers have been elected.
The upper chamber also resolved to inform the international parliamentary bodies that a quorum of the Senate of the 9th National Assembly has assembled and was ready to receive any communication.
