Senate to pass 2019 budget in April 16

The Senate has promised to pass the 2019 budget on April 16.

This is just as President Muhammadu Buhari declined to assent the controversial National Housing Fund Bill and seven others recently passed by the National Assembly.

The Senate President Bukola Saraki made the announcement at plenary. He urged sub-committees of the Appropriation Committee to submit their reports by Friday this week.

He also mandated the Appropriation panel to submit its report from April 9 to 11, 2019.

Saraki subsequently adjourned plenary to April 9 to enable relevant committees to complete budget defence sessions with ministries, departments and agencies.
