Baring any unforeseen circumstances, there are indications that the 2016 Appropriation bill may be passed by the second week of March, Ripples has learnt.
Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin
Jibrin, gave this hint on Monday while receiving report of the House Committee on Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) on the defense of the budget of the Commission.
“I can confirm to you clearly that the extension of time is to allow the appropriation committee to do a necessary cleaning up. Taking this into consideration, the budget will be passed by the second week of March.
“The passage of the budget has not been suspended indefinitely. What we said
is that due to the errors discovered, we will need additional time to take a second look at the budget and to also take on the Minister of Finance and the Minister of Budget and National Planning,” he said.
