President Bola Tinubu on Wednesday signed the 2023 Supplementary Budget N2.17trn into law at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
The President’s signatory is a sequel to event on Thursday, when the Senate and the House of Representatives passed the N2.17trn 2023 supplementary appropriation bill after a third reading.
Before the passage of the bill, the Senate adopted the report of the harmonised sittings of both red and green chambers on the 2023 Supplementary Appropriation Bill as submitted by the Chairman of the Appropriations Committee, Senator Solomon Olamilekan Adeola (APC, Ogun West).
The bill expeditiously scaled readings in both upper and lower chambers as lawmakers said it was for the benefit of the country.
Tinubu had written the National Assembly seeking the approval of the sum of N2,176,791,286,033 as the 2023 supplementary budget to address labour wage adjustments, security, and more.
Tinubu had said the supplementary bill was necessary for additional palliative measures including wage awards.
