PMB signs 2023 budget

Share

The 2023 Appropriations Bill has been enacted by President Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retired).

In the presence of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President Ahmad Lawan, Speaker of the House of Representatives Femi Gbajabiamila, and other Federal Executive Council members, Buhari signed the budget for the 2023 transition on Tuesday morning in the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

Speaking at the occasion, the President pledged that, as it neared May 29, 2023, his administration will expedite important national infrastructure projects.

He pointed out that the budget’s total expenditures total N21.83 trillion, up N1.32 trillion over the initial executive proposal’s N20.51 trillion.

Following a private meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja over the weekend, Senate President Ahmad Lawan informed the media that the President would sign the 2023 budget on Tuesday.

By the grace of God, Mr. President will sign the Appropriations Bill 2023 on Tuesday, according to Lawan.

This is due to the fact that we signed the documents yesterday after being delayed by some strange figures we had in the bill we had submitted to the National Assembly.

Thank God, however, that the Appropriations Bill 2023 was approved by the National Assembly on Wednesday in both chambers. I am confident that the President and his team will now work to implement what we have accomplished. And I believe that Mr. President will sign the Appropriation Bill 2023 first thing on Tuesday, the first day of the year that is officially designated as a working day.
