Senate meets on smooth 2017 budget passage

Senate Leader, Senator Ahmed Lawan, on Monday assured Nigerians that the 2017 budget will be smoothly and promptly passed.

Senator Lawan told reporters in Abuja that the Senate leadership will meet committee chairmen on the need to ensure a seamless budget process.

He noted that it is obvious that Nigerians are waiting anxiously for the 2017 budget to be passed.

He said, “The leadership will meet tomorrow (Tuesday) with committee chairmen on the way forward for the budget. After the meeting, committees will begin the budget defence. We don’t envisage any issues. Everybody has learnt his lesson. We are all working for the smooth passage of the budget.”

Lawan said the meeting with committee chairmen would pave the way for the committees to do their job of passing the budget as soon as possible.

Senate President, Bukola Saraki, had on Thursday announced that the Senate Leadership would meet with committee chairmen after plenary but the meeting was shifted to Tuesday.

It is expected that the meeting would lay the template for the budget defence with Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).

The meeting will also draw the time table for the budget defence.
