The 2019 appropriation bill has been signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari.

 

The 2019 budget of N8.83 trillion submitted to the Senate by the President was increased by about N10bn by the Upper House, summing the amount to 8.92 trillion.

 

President Buhari said the adjustment of the budget by the National Assembly might affect its smooth implementation.

 

President Buhari, speaking at the event which took place at the President’s mini conference room, Presidential Villa, Abuja said the addition of N90bn to the N8.83trn he submitted to the legislature would make it difficult for government to realize its set objectives.
