President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has asked the Committee on Appropriations to lay its report on the 2020 budget on November 26, for consideration and passage before the end of the month.
Lawan, who stated this at plenary on Tuesday, commended the various committees for rounding off their budget defence sessions on the schedule. He insisted that the resolve of the National Assembly to revert to the January-to-December budget cycle remained sacrosanct.
He said, “All the committees have done their works so well within the defined parameters. “Therefore, we expect the appropriations committee to galvanise into action.
