Published by The Nation on Wed, 04 Dec 2019


Sanni Onogu, AbujaThe Senate President, Ahmad Lawan Wednesday said that the 2020 Appropriation Bill will be passed Thursday by the Red Chamber.Lawan disclosed this in his remarks after the passage of the Public Procurement Act (amendment) Bill, 2019 by the Senate.The report of the Senate Committee on Appropriations was laid before the upper chamber on Wednesday by its Chairman, Senator Jibrin Barau.According to Lawan, the Public Procurement bill passed by the upper chamber will be forwarded to the House of Representatives for concurrence.Lawan said: What we have done today is really to put the icing on the cake on what we are about to do tomorrow (Thursday) by the grace of God when we pass the 2020 budget.We have already passed the Finance bills that will ensure that we get the required revenue to implement the budget.Read Also:Edo Assembly passes 2020 budgetThe public procurement process in Nigeria has been a big bottleneck for some time, probably since it was passed.I believe that with this amendment, the procurement process will be faster and better, as will be the budget implementation process.Surely, this bill will have to go to the House of Representatives for them to concur.I had a discussion with the Honourable Speaker that they will concur with us before we go on the Christmas break so that we will give the executive all they would require for them to implement the 2020 budget successfully, Lawan said.
