The president signed the budget document into law on Tuesday in the presence of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Ahmad Lawan, the senate president, and Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house of representatives, amongst other principal officers.
The budget was increased by N260 billion from N10.33 trillion as contained in the proposal submitted by Buhari on October 8.
It is my pleasant duty, today, on my 77th birthday, to sign the 2020 Appropriation Bill into law. I’m pleased that the National Assembly has expeditiously passed this Bill. Our Federal Budget is now restored to a January-December implementation cycle.
