Senate president Ahmad Lawan says the National Assembly will pass the 2023 appropriation bill of N20.5 trillion before the end of December.

He disclosed this on Tuesday in Abuja at a reception organised to celebrate the national honour of Grand Commander of the Order of Niger (GCON) bestowed on him by President Muhamadu Buhari.

Mr Buhari on Friday presented the 2023 budget before a joint session of the National Assembly.

The budget is tagged ‘Budget of Fiscal Sustainability and Transition’.

Mr Lawan, in a speech at the reception, said the senate would begin debate on the bill on Wednesday (today).

“Tomorrow, we will start the debate on the 2023 appropriation bill. Like we did for the three previous sessions, we are going to pass it before the end of December,” the senator promised. (NAN)
