President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to submit the 2021 budget to the Senate next week.
Senate President Ahmed Lawan disclosed this while delivering his welcome address to legislators at plenary on Tuesday.
With the new development, the Senate president says the government MDA’s will be given only the month of October to defend their budgets.
While presenting a roadmap to the senate for the next few months, Lawan said the Senate will ensure speedy work on the amendment of the 1999 Constitution and electoral act.
He also read a letter from President Buhari seeking the consideration and passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB).
