The Nigerian Senate has given a one week ultimatum to agencies and parastatals who are yet to submit their budget proposal to the Senate to do so through relevant committees of the upper legislative chambers.

This followed a point of order raised by the Senate leader, Ahmed Lawal, who during Wednesday’s plenary drew the attention of the lawmakers to the fact that most government agencies are in breach of the fiscal responsibility act for carrying out extra budgetary spending without the Senate’s approval

The Senate reached a consensus on the need to have the budgets of these agencies passed before it proceeds for its annual recess.

‎‎In another development, the President of the Senate Bukola Saraki, today administered the oath of office on Senator Ademola Adeleke as‎ Senator representing Osun West Senatorial District.‎

Senator Adeleke won last Saturday’s bye-election held in 10 local government areas. He is the younger brother of the late Sen. Isiaka Adeleke, who died on April 23.
