National Assembly transmits 2022 budget to Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to sign the 2022 Appropriation bill before 31st December, 2021.

This follows the transmission of the signed bill by the National Assembly.

A source at the office of the Clerk to the National Assembly who confirmed that the budget has been transmitted to the President said, “Hopefully, before 31st, the budget will be signed”.

“The budget has been transmitted to the president since Sunday. Since 26, the budget has been transmitted to the president.

“The budget was actually sent on the 24th and by Christmas day, it was already with the President.

“The letter from the National Assembly was dated 24th and by 25th, it was already stamped and received at the Villa, at the office of the Chief of Staff to the President”.

The source debunked the report that the budget had not been transmitted to the president three days to the end of the year.

The House of Representatives and the Senate passed the 2022 budget last week before they embarked on their annual recess.
