President Muhammadu Buhari has signed the 2019 Appropriation bill into law.
The National Assembly had earlier passed the 2019 Budget of N8.92trn, as against N8.83trn presented by President Buhari on December 18, 2018
The increase of N90bn in the budget was to cater for security challenges in the country, packages for lawmakers and support for Zamfara State.
But signing the budget on Monday, the President faulted the increase in the budget, which introduced new projects.
The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, however, arrived late for the signing ceremony.
He arrived the President’s office by 11.17am
The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, who represented him at the ceremony, had disclosed that Saraki was coming straight to the Villa from the airport
