NASS Adds Additional N143bn To 2017 Budget

By  | 

The leadership of the National Assembly moments ago announced the upward review of the 2017 Appropriation Bill from N7.298tr submitted by President Muhammadu Buhari to N7.441tr.

The difference of N143bn was added by the lawmakers after review by the Appropriation Committees of the upper and lower chambers.

Reports from the Senate earlier today indicated the readiness of the Legislative arm of Government to approve the Bill this week.

It will be recalled that the 2016 Budget elapsed on Friday May 5th, 2017. A development that has since put the nation in a situation of ‘no budget’.

More updates shortly…
