Senate may pass 2019 budget in April

The senate has resumed the consideration of the general principles of the 2019 appropriation bill and slate the passage of the N8.83 trillion budget estimates for next month.

Senate president, Bukola Saraki, after the conclusion of the debate of the general principles of the fiscal document, gave the appropriation committee where the budget proposal was referred to, two weeks to turn in its report for consideration and passage.

The upper chamber resolved to ignore heads of Ministries, Departments And Agencies (MDAS), who may fail to appear before the sub-committees to defend their budget proposals.

Sub-committees were mandated to adopt the proposals as submitted by President Muhammadu Buhari to a joint session of the national assembly at the event that any MDA failed to appear before them.
