The National Assembly will now pass the 2022 Budget into law next week, after they met on Wednesday and agreed to shift it to next week.
This is because the National Assembly wants to focus on preparations for 2023 elections and the 2022 National Population Census.
The chairman of the Senate Committee on Appropriation, Barau Jibrin, disclosed this when he met with journalists in Abuja on Wednesday.
“The 2023 general elections and the projected national head counts slated for next year are very important that is the reason why we want to make provisions for them in the 2022 budget .
“As a result of the importance of the two exercises, the passage of the 2022 budget will no longer be possible this week as earlier planned and clearly stated on our time table,” he said.
