Details of National Assembly’s 2018 budget released by Senate

The National Assembly leadership has released details of its 2018 budget.

Findings show that the release of the fiscal document, hitherto held secret, was in line with the directive of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, who asked Clerk to the National Assembly, Mohammed Sani-Omolari, to release the document for public view.

Saraki, however, confirmed this, via his verified Twitter handle in a tweet publicly addressed to BudgIT, a civic tech organization which helps to raise the standards of transparency in public finance.

This is in accordance with the commitment of the leadership of the 8th National Assembly to accountability and transparency.

The 45-page document shows that a total of N139,500,000,000 was budgeted for the National Assembly in the year 2018.
