Speaking in an exclusive interview with LeadershipNg on Monday, Senator Babajide Omoworare, the chairman of the Senate Committee on Rules and Business, said that the Red Chamber has reworked the document and would debate and pass it today or tomorrow.

He said: “To the best of my knowledge, the budget will be laid tomorrow (today), March 22 and debated, except something happens that we may not be in control of. We may even pass the budget tomorrow.”

“Over the years, there have been errors in the budgets that we passed, but we passed them”.

“We urge Nigerians to be patient with the Senate and the House of Representatives on the Budget, as thorough efforts of the parliament would turn out in the best interest of the masses.”

In the same vein, a member of the Federal House of Representatives, Abdulmumin Jibrin, who represents Kiru/Bebeji Federal constituency of Kano State, stated that the Senate will pass its version of the Appropriations Bill on Wednesday.
