Senate President, Dr. Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan, after over two hours’ executive session behind closed doors, has revealed that the 2021 National budget would be presented to the joint session of the National Assembly next week.

The Senate President minutes ago, also stressed that the 2020 implementation of Nigeria’s annual budget has been disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As we make effort to attend to the expeditious passage of 2021, I want to advise Chief Executives of agencies of government to make themselves available to defend their budget on time,” he said

He expressed fears that the impact of COVID-19 against the nation would be devastating if nothing was done to mitigate such, saying that all arms of government should hastily rise to the occasion of ensuring that the economy was prevented from going into recession.
