Buhari to get 2018 Budget on Friday – Saraki

The National Assembly will on Friday transmit the harmonised 2018 Budget to President Muhammadu Buhari for assent, said Senate President, Bukola Saraki on Thursday night at the Presidential Villa Abuja.

“I think that should have been done, we had to harmonise, its just a slight difference, it has been passed yesterday (Wednesday).

“It was in the rules and proceedings of today (Thursday) so I am sure by tomorrow (Friday), we will transmit it to the Presidency.” he said

Both chambers of the Assembly had on May 16, 2018 approved the budget estimates submitted by Buhari on November 7, 2017.

The lawmakers also raised the total figure from N8.6 trillion to N9.1 trillion, six months after it was presented.
