In a significant development, the Senate has given its unanimous approval to President Bola Tinubu’s proposed supplementary budget of N2.1 trillion for the 2023 fiscal year. Senate President Godswill Akpabio, presiding over the session, officially announced the approval by striking the gavel after Senators participated in a voice vote.
This pivotal decision comes following a thorough examination and discussion of the report presented by the Senate Committee on Appropriations during Thursday’s plenary session.
Senator Adeola Olamilekan, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Appropriations, presented the committee’s comprehensive report for consideration, which was subsequently adopted and extensively debated by the senators present. In a display of unity across party lines, senators cast their votes in favor of the supplementary budget proposal.
