It had fixed Tuesday, October 31, 2017, for the presentation of the budget proposal for next year, however, it mixed this date.
This year’s budget was submitted to the National Assembly by President Muhammadu Buhari in December 2016.

However, the Speaker reminded his colleagues that the parliament does not have the constitutional powers to reject the presentation of the budget proposal by the President.
