Senate President Ahmed Lawan has said President Muhammadu Buhari , will on Tuesday January 3 2023 sign the 2023 appropriation bill.

Lawan on Friday revealed this after a closed-door meeting with the President at the State House, Abuja.

The Senate President who arrived at the Villa minutes before 3:00 pm said he discussed Buhari’s recent additional loan request, the legislature’s support to the Independent National Electoral Commission ahead of the general elections, the 2023 appropriate bill and other national matters.

Ahmed Lawan lamented that the National Assembly would have passed the bill a week earlier had it not been for irregularities spotted in the bill.

It would be the first time in four years that the Buhari-led government signed the national budget in the new year.

He said a seamless working relationship between the executive and the legislature has regularised the signing of the appropriation bills since 2018 resulting in a “predictable January to December budget for our country.”
