President Muhammadu Buhari will tomorrow present the 2021 Appropriations Bill to a Joint session of both chambers of the National Assembly.

Buhari’s letter of request was read during plenary by the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, in Abuja.

The letter reads: “May I crave the kind indulgence of the Distinguished Senate to grant me the slot of 11:00hrs on Thursday, 8th October, 2020, to formally present the 2021 Appropriation bill to the Joint Session of the National Assembly.

“While I look forward to addressing the Joint session, please, accept Mr. Senate President, the assurances of my highest regard.”


  1. The decision to present the budget early by government is worthy and commendable. This will give the legislature more time to critically go through it and debate on it without unnecessary delay. Delay in the approval of budget is unhealthy for economic recovery and growth.
