The Senate has expressed readiness to begin debate on the 2017 appropriations bill submitted by President Muhammadu Buhari, this week.

Both chambers of the National Assembly had last week passed the Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) and Fiscal Strategy Paper (FSP) for 2017 to 2019, paving way for the consideration of the 2017 appropriations bill.

The Notice Paper for the week from Monday, January 23, to Friday, January 27, issued by the office of the Chairman of the Committee on Rules and Business, Senator Baba Kaka Garbai, shows that all three days of plenary will be dedicated to debate on the 2017 budget.
