Reps committees on budget to submit report December

The Chairman House committee on Appropriation, Mr Betra Muktar, says the report gathered from the committees on Budget presentation from MDAs will be laid on the floor of the House on the 15th of December 2021 for consideration.

Mr Mukhtar, made the remark at the committee’s first meeting on the 2022 budget estimates of over sixteen trillion Naira as presented by President Muhammadu Buhari to the National Assembly.

The lawmaker, said that the Appropriation committee would be divided into subcommittees to ensure a thorough scrutiny of the proposed budget estimates.

He also insisted that funds should not be moved from one sub-head to the other as all projects must remain under where they are domiciled.
