President of the Senate, Dr. Ahmad Lawan, has said President Muhammadu Buhari will submit the 2021 budget estimates to the National Assembly next week.
He has, therefore, appealed to senators to embark on necessary oversight functions on the federal ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs), to assess the performance of the revised 2020 budget.
Lawan stated this in his speech while welcoming his colleagues from an eight-week recess.
He said the lawmakers would devote the month of October for budget defence while November will be for the internal processing of the document.
He said: “I am aware that the president will submit the 2021 budget estimates to us next week.”
