President Muhammadu Buhari has signed the National Assembly’s approved N8.92 trillion for the 2019 fiscal year.
The President appended his signature to the budget on Monday, May 27, in Abuja.
The budget which is a N10billion increase from that of 2018, was initially put to the tune of N8.83 trillion and presented by the President to the Senate.
Consequently, the National Assembly had passed the N8.92trn budget, against the previous N8.83trn presented by the President Buhari on December 18, 2018.
The increase by N10bn is to cater for security challenges in the country, support for Zamfara State and packages for lawmakers.
