Buhari Presents N11tr 2020 Budget To National Assembly Today

President Muhammadu Buhari will today present an appropriation bill

of N10.729 trillion for the 2020 fiscal year before a joint session of

the National Assembly.

Mr Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and

Publicity, confirmed this development at the end of an extraordinary

meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC).

The meeting which considered the 2020 budget proposals before its

presentation to the National Assembly on Tuesday by 1.30pm, was

presided over by President Buhari at the Council Chamber of the

Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Monday.

Adesina, who briefly spoke to State House correspondents, said:

“No briefing, we only looked at what we will present at the National

Assembly tomorrow”, referring to Tuesday’s presentation of the

2020 budget proposal to the NASS by President Buhari.

President Buhari is expected to lay the 2020 budget before a joint

session of the Senate and House of Representatives Today for approval,

“as the country intends to revert to the January to December budget cycle.’’

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the early presentation

of the 2020 budget is meant to return the Federal Government budget cycle from May-June to January-December.

The Senate had on Thursday increased the proposed 2020 budget from N10.007 billion to N10.729 trillion.

However, President Buhari and the leadership of the National Assembly had on Sunday night (Oct. 6) met behind closed doors at the President’s official residence in Abuja in what appeared to be `2020 budget reconciliation meeting’.
