President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday morning signed the 2023 Appropriation Bill of N21.83trillion into law.
The Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, had hinted last week that barring any last minute changes, Buhari would sign the 2023 appropriation bill on Tuesday.
Lawan had confirmed this to State House correspondents on Friday after a closed-door meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He had revealed that he discussed some national issues with Mr Buhari, including the president’s recent additional loan request, the legislature’s support to the Independent
National Electoral Commission (INEC) ahead of the general elections and the 2023 Appropriation Bill.
Buhari signed the 2023 transition budget Tuesday morning at the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, in the presence of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate
President Ahmed Lawan, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, and other members of the Federal Executive Council.
