Reps agree to admit Buhari present 2019 Appropriation Bill before a Joint Session of NASS

The House of Representatives has resolved to admit President Muhammadu Buhari on the floor of the green chambers to present the 2019 Appropriation Bill to the Joint Session of the National Assembly.

The resolution was sequel to the adoption of a motion by the Leader of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila (APC-Lagos), at the Plenary presided over by the Deputy Speaker, Yussuf Lassun on Tuesday.

Moving the motion earlier, Gbajabiamila urged the House to support the motion to enable the President to perform his constitutional functions.

When the motion was put to a voice vote, while some members in the House were in support, others shouted against the motion.

The Deputy Speaker, however, ruled to allow the President to present the 2019 Appropriation.

The President had on December 13 written to the House to grant him a slot to present the Budget.
