Implementation Of 2020 Budget Extends To March 2021 – Senate

The 2020 implementation budget which was supposed to lapse on 31st December, was extended to March 2021 by the Nigeria Senate, according to reports.

The decision was made by the disruption of the budget implementation by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Senator Yahaya Abdullahi, explained in the amended motion presented to the plenary on Wednesday by the Senate leader, that agencies of government were yet to execute any meaningful project, hence, its extension would afford them full implementation.

The amendment motion was seconded by Senator Adamu Aliero and was subsequently upheld after due consideration.
