President Bola Tinubu will present the 2024 budget to the National Assembly in the next two weeks.
Punch said the President will also submit the supplementary budget for 2023 to the National Assembly for consideration.
The Chairman, the Senate Committee on Appropriation, Senator Solomon Adeola, who made this known during the inaugural meeting of the committee, stated that the National Assembly would ensure that the 2024 budget is passed before December 31, 2024.
“I assure you that we won’t break the tradition, we will have the budget as at when due. We will keep to the tradition of the January to December budget cycle.”
Talking about the delayed presentation of the budget by the President to the National Assembly, the lawmaker said the change in government was a significant factor that should be considered.
“I want you to take cognizance of the change of government on May 29.
“There is a teething problem because there is a change of government. The new administration has a new mantra that encapsulates its vision and there must be challenges.”
