Reps to Pass 2018 Budget Next Tuesday

The House of Representatives has slated next Tuesday for the laying of 2018 budget. The House may also pass the Appropriation Bill the same day. The House may, after the passage of the bill, shut down plenary to protest the killing of Nigerians, especially in Benue State.

 

It will be recalled that the House while adopting a motion last week took the decision to show their displeasure in the seemingly endless killings across the country. Briefing journalists at the end of yesterday’s sitting, Abdulrazak Namdas, Chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, said Tuesday was sacrosanct for the passage of the budget. 

 

By Tuesday, the financial document would have stayed six months and one day at the National Assembly after President Muhammadu Buhari presented the 2018 Appropriation Bill of N8.612 trllion before a joint session of National Assembly on November 7, 2017. Namdas said: “Hopefully, we want to pass the budget next week. The budget is a voluminous  document but I can authoritatively confirm that we will pass it. “We’ll lay it on Tuesday. We’re working very hard and within that same week or by this time next week we will pass it. I’m no longer speculating, I am sure now.”
