Breaking News: Senate Passes 2019 Budget, Raises Budget Bill

The National Assembly has passed the 2019 Appropriation Bill. The N8.9 trillion budget was passed some minutes ago during the Senate’s plenary session headed by Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

Note that the national budget was raised from N8.906 trillion to N8.916 ‎trillion.

While appreciating his colleagues for meeting the deadline for the passage of the budget, Saraki urged the Federal Government to ensure the budget is implemented on time in order to benefit Nigerians.

“I want to thank our colleagues, particularly for their understanding and for us to be able to meet today’s deadline in passing the bill and thank the committee on appropriation too.”- Senate President,

“I hope that with this budget passed, the executive will also ensure the full implementation of the budget for the benefit of Nigerians as a whole.”

Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.~Wilma RudolphTweet
