Senate to consider Buhari’s N895.84bn supplementary budget request next Tuesday

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Senate will on Tuesday, next week, consider President Muhammadu Buhari’s request to the National Assembly for the approval of N895.84 billion naira as a supplementary budget for the 2021 fiscal year.

The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, gave the hint in his remark during plenary following a request by the Appropriations Committee Chairman, Senator Jibrin Barau, for time to allow the Joint Committees of the Senate and House of Representatives to come up with a harmonized report on the supplemental appropriations bill. 

President Buhari last week transmitted a supplementary appropriations bill for N895.842,465,917 billion naira to the National Assembly for consideration and approval. 

He explained that the proposed amount would be used to fund the COVID-19 vaccine programme; fund health-related expenditures for the treatment of additional 50,000 patients under the Nigeria Comprehensive AIDS Program in states, and procure additional equipment captured in this year’s capital expenditure on Defence and Security to tackle prevalent security challenges across the country. 

Senator Barau, while coming under order 43 of the Senate Rule on Personal Explanation, sought the approval of the upper chamber for more time to enable the Appropriations Joint Committee of the Senate and House of Representatives to harmonize their reports on the supplementary budget request for presentation next week Tuesday.  

He said, “I was directed to submit the report of the 2021 Supplementary Appropriations Bill to this Senate today. 

“I wish to tell this distinguished Senate that my committee went with that directive, and we have concluded our work on the bill.

“However, Mr President, we are yet to harmonize our position with that of the House of Representatives.

“The meeting to harmonize our position with the House of Representatives is tomorrow. 

“We hope that we are going to finish with them, harmonize and have the same position to have a seamless supplementary approval process within the National Assembly. 

“Therefore, Mr President, I’m requesting that the Senate should show understanding because of this development and allow us to lay the report on Tuesday. I so submit, Sir.” 

Responding, the Senate President said, “because you have come under, standing order 43 which does not allow for debate on the issue raised, I’ll on behalf of the Senate advise that your committee should remain very concerned with strict consideration of whatever the executive side of government has brought as request in the supplementary. 

“So, do proper scrutiny, you have requested this yesterday. Work with the House so that we have a Joint report, so we don’t have to go into harmonizations. 

“Leave no stone unturned in considering the issues item-by-item, then we unfailingly receive the report and consider it on Tuesday.”

After I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked
on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is
added I receive 4 emails with the same comment. Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from
that service? Many thanks!
