Written by on October 4, 2022

President Muhammadu Buhari will on Friday, present and lay before the two chambers of the National Assembly, the proposed nineteen point seven nine (19.76) trillion budgets for the 2023 financial year.

Reports gathered reveal that the letter on budget presentation by President Buhari was personally written by him and read in plenary today by the Senate President, Dr Ahmad Lawan and Speaker of the House Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila.

Shortly after reading the letter, Lawan said the President would appear personally to address the joint session of the parliamentarians as against the earlier fears that there might be no space to accommodate the session due to the ongoing renovation.

At the House, Speaker GBAJABIAMILA said the decision to present the budget on Friday was as a result of the meeting the leadership held last Friday with minister of finance Zainab Ahmed, with a view for an early presentation and urged his colleagues to be present on that day.
