Senate grants Tinubu’s request for joint Budget Session today  

The Senate has granted the request by President Bola Tinubu to hold a joint session today, for the presentation of the 2024 Budget.

This is coming a day after the National Assembly, through its Secretary of Research and Information, Dr. Ali Barde Umoru, announced that the President will address the parliament today, Wednesday, November 29.

Tinubu, three weeks ago, forwarded to both chambers of the National Assembly the 20224-2026 Medium-Term Expenditure Framework and Fiscal Strategy Paper, (MTEF), where the sum of N26.1 trillion was proposed as the total expenditure profile for the 2024 fiscal year.

Recall that the Federal Executive Council (FEC) gave the approval on Monday, at the weekly executive meeting presided over by President Bola Tinubu. 

Minister of National Planning and Budget, Atiku Bagudu, had on October 16 told State House correspondents that the Budget proposal would be submitted to the National Assembly before December 31.
