FG to present 2019 budget to parliament on Dec 19


ABUJA, Dec 13 – Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has asked to present the 2019 budget to parliament on Dec. 19, the speaker of the lower house, Yakubu Dogara, said on Thursday, citing a letter from Buhari.

In October, the president’s cabinet agreed to send an 8.73 trillion naira ($28.47 billion) budget to lawmakers for approval. That process can take more than half a year of wrangling, hobbling the release of funds that could boost Nigeria’s economy.
