2021 BUDGET: SENATE EXTENDS IMPLEMENTATION TO MAY 31

The Senate has extended the implementation of the 2021 Appropriation Act from 31st March to 31st May 2022.

The Red Chamber approved the extension on Tuesday following the consideration of a bill to amend the 2021 Appropriation Act sponsored by Senate Leader, Senator Yayah Abdullahi (Kebbi North).

Sen. Abdullahi explained that the extension of the budget period became imperative in view of the need to complete ongoing projects nearing completion.

The Kebbi North Senator noted that in previous Appropriation Acts, extensions were usually covered by a Clause, in line with the provisions of Section 318 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria that the Act runs for a period of 12 months, starting from the date it comes into effect.

The bill to amend the 2021 Appropriation Act was, thereafter, passed after the suspension of Rule 78(1) of the Senate Standing Orders, sequel to its consideration by the Committee on Supply.
