House of Representatives to commence debate on 2019 budget today

House of Representatives will today commence debate on the 2019 budget presented by President Muhammadu Buhari on December 19 last year before the joint session of the national assembly.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, who made the announcement during plenary yesterday, said the House will commence the second reading of the budget today after a valedictory session slated in honour of Ayeola and late President Shehu Shagari.

Meanwhile, the lawmakers are yet to pass the 2019-2021 Medium Term Expenditure Framework and Fiscal Strategy Paper over two months after it was transmitted to them.
