President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, received resounding applause and cheers when he visited the National Assembly to present the 2020 budget.
The lawmakers were heard chanting ‘Sai Baba’ throughout the presentation.
The Senate had received official communication from Buhari to present the 2020 appropriation bill before a joint session of the National Assembly last week on Tuesday.
The request, which was dated October 2, 2019, and addressed to Senate President Ahmad Lawan, was read at plenary last Thursday.
Also, the upper legislative chamber, after an extensive debate, approved the 16 recommendations contained in the report of the National Assembly Joint Committee on Finance and National Planning on the 2020-2022 Medium Term Expenditure Framework and Fiscal Strategy Paper.
