The Senate said on Wednesday that only those involved in budget preparation would accompany President to the National Assembly on Thursday. The President is expected to present the 2021 national budget estimates to the joint session of the federal parliament on Thursday.

The President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, told his colleagues at plenary that the joint session would take place in the chamber of the House of Representatives.

He said, ‘This time around because of the situation of COVID-19 pandemic, we have made arrangements to observe social distancing in the chamber. “We also have to wear or face masks mandatorily.

We are going to also abridge the entire event because we will be many there. “So, the entire event will last just about an hour. From the entry of the President into the chamber and addresses and the presentation and laying will be just an hour event.

“This is done so that we would be able to comply with the requirements of the COVID-19 protocol.

“Mr. President this time around will not be accompanied by many people on the entourage
