Final copy of budget to be laid for consideration on twenty-eight November.

Senate President, Ahmed Lawan says the National Assembly is looking forward to receiving final copy of the budget from its committees in Appropriation by twenty-eight November and pass the budget before the Christmas break.

Lawan also disclosed that between thirtieth October and fifth November, 2019, the various committees of both the Senate and House of Representatives are expected to defend their presentations before the committees on appropriation, adding that the twenty-nineth October deadline for budget defence was sacrosanct.

He also said the current National Assembly was not a rubber stamp to anybody, but only collaborating with the Executive in the overall national interest.
