The National Assembly has tasked the Federal Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to provide achievable targets that are measurable with timelines for the implementation of the 2020 Budget. President of the Senate and Chairman of the National Assembly, Ahmad Lawan, said the ninth Assembly is not only concerned about the timely passage of the budget but also deeply concerned about its implementation.
Lawan, flanked by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila and principal officers of both chambers, spoke at the National Budget Hearing on the 2020 Federal Government Budget which began on Wednesday at the National Assembly.
The Senate President said: “We have mandated our Committees to engage with the MDAs. We want the MDAs to give us roadmaps on how they intend to achieve their targets. Vice President Yemi Osinbajo chaired the meeting in the absence of President Muhammadu Buhari who is away on official duty in Russia.
