It is also on record that the President laid the 2022 budget proposal before the National Assembly on 7th October 2021.
So, when he presents the 2023 budget before the lawmakers this Friday, it would be exactly a year after.
As soon as the lawmakers resumed plenary on Tuesday, the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, read Buhari’s letter of request to present the 2023 budget at plenary.
The presentation, according to the letter, would take place by 10:00 am at the temporary chamber of the House of Representatives due to ongoing renovation works in both chambers.
