“We Hope Buhari Will Sign 2022 Budget Next Week” – Lawan

President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to sign the 2022 appropriation bill next week, according to Senate President Ahmad Lawan.

  • After meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Friday, Lawan told State House correspondents about it.

According to Freshreporters News, the Senate and House of Representatives passed the 2022 budget earlier this week, raising the estimate to N17.13 trillion.

In an interview with reporters, Lawan expressed optimism that the president will sign the bill into law next week.

The Senate President stated that the National Assembly did a good job passing the appropriation bill before the holiday break.

The president invited Lawan and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, to thank them for passing the budget before the end of the year, according to Lawan.

In his words: “We’re very optimistic. In fact, we’re very sure that Mr President will sign the bill into an act of the national assembly next week by the grace of God.

“And this is the way we should always work together. This is our third appropriation bill to be passed before we go on Christmas break.

“It has shown how important the passage and the assent to the budget before the end of the year has been. You will recall that we were in two or three different recessions. But public expenditure, which normally drives our economy as a developing economy, has always brought that advantage, made the availability of funds into the economy, and we can come out of the recess periods.”

The president invited Lawan and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, to thank them for passing the budget before the end of the year, according to Lawan.

“So, I want to thank Mr President for thanking the national assembly, because this is essentially the reason he invited the speaker and me to say that ‘national assembly, thank you very much for working with us, for making this budget 2022 pass in good time as you did for 2020 and 2021,” he added.
