The Senate on Tuesday adjourned plenary for two weeks to engage Ministries, Departments and Agencies in defence of their 2020 budgets.
President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, announced the adjournment during Tuesday’s plenary.
Lawan said that the adjournment was to engage MDAs for the purpose of defending the 2020 Appropriation Bill.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that President of the Senate had, on October 8, urged MDAs to appear before Senate committees in October to defend their 2020 budget.
According to Lawan, the exercise is supposed to last for two weeks.
“And like we said before, for the sake of emphasis, all MDAs should take this opportunity to come forward to the various committees in the National Assembly to defend their budgets within the two weeks.
“This is the only window available. And for our committees, we wish you the best of outing.
“We will be coming to the National Assembly — those of us who are not members of the committees — to give the moral support that is required,” he said. Punch
