President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has said the National Assembly is committed to passing the 2022 Appropriation Bill before the end of this year.
Lawan, in his opening speech at the budget laying ceremony, recalled how the 9th National Assembly promised to return Nigeria to a January-to-December budget cycle with the 2020 budget and made it possible. He added that the feat was repeated with the 2021 budget.
While thanking the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), for early presentation of budget, the Senate President said the lawmakers would pass the money bill before the end of 2021 to allow maintenance of the new budget cycle
