By Dipo Olowookere
President Bola Tinubu has arrived at the National Assembly to present the 2024 Appropriation Bill to the federal lawmakers.
The President got to the parliament at about a few minutes past 11 am on Wednesday, November 29, 2023, and was accompanied by the Vice President, Mr Kashim Shettima; his Chief of Staff, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila; the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Abdullahi Gandoje; and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr George Akume; among others.
He is expected to present the 2024 budget of N27.5 trillion to a joint session of the legislative arm of government.
This is the first budget Mr Tinubu is presenting to the National Assembly, as he inherited the 2023 Appropriation Act from his predecessor, Mr Muhammadu Buhari.
