President Muhammadu Buhari will present the 2018 Appropriation Bill to a joint session of the National Assembly today (Tuesday), 7th November. The 2018 budget proposal presentation is scheduled to hold at 2pm.

The Federal Government plans to spend about N8.6tn next year, a jump of about 15 per cent from the N7.44tn budgeted for the current year.

It was however, gathered that leaders of both the Senate and the House of Representatives were making last minute efforts to prevent drama during the presentation. A source in the Senate, who spoke on condition of anonymity, disclosed on Mondaydisclosed that the President will present the budget on Tuesday (today) but there is an issue. Some members of the National Assembly, particularly in the House of Representatives, are against the presentation of a new budget proposal when the current one has not been implemented considerably.

The National Assembly began beefing up security on Monday ahead of the President’s visit. As part of the security measures, the management of the National Assembly advised all members of staff, who had no scheduled assignment relating to the budget presentation, to stay away from the premises. The Police and Department of State Services operatives were also seen making security arrangements on Monday at the premises.
