BREAKING: Senate passes N2.17tn 2023 supplementary budget

The N2.17 trillion 2023 Supplementary Appropriations Bill, which President Bola Tinubu recently handed to the Nigerian Senate, was passed.

The Senate Committee on Appropriations Chairman, Senator Solomon Olamilekan Adeola (APC Ogun West), presented the report of the harmonized sittings of both chambers on the bill, which was adopted prior to the passage.

Recall that following the Federal Executive Council’s approval on Monday, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s government presented a N2.1 trillion budget to the National Assembly.

The Wage Award for Civil Servants, N605 billion for National Security and Defense, N300 billion for bridge maintenance, particularly the Eko bridge, N400 billion for cash transfers to households in need, N200 billion for seed and agricultural inputs and equipment, and N18 billion for the Independent National Electoral Commission to hold off-season elections are some of the budget’s major components.
