Lawmakers can’t go the finances as it “came with some problems” that have been found out via the National Assembly Committees on Appropriations.

The National Assembly has postponed the passage of the 2023 finances until subsequent week because of ‘issues’ found out in the finances.

The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, introduced this in the beginning of the plenary on Thursday.

He stated the lawmakers can’t go the finances as it “came with some problems” that have been found out via the National Assembly Committees on Appropriations.

“The Appropriations Bill got here to the National Assembly with some issues and when our Committees on Appropriations in the Senate and House of Representatives began to reconcile the figures of what has been accomplished and what used to be offered.

“The problems became obvious and not easy to deal with and the Committees had to start a process of cleaning up the bill. That process engaged the Executive because the problem came from them. They (committees) only concluded that yesterday,” he defined.

Mr Lawan didn’t supply main points of the type of “problems” found out in the finances.

He merely knowledgeable his colleagues that the committee secretariat used to be no longer in a position to complete processing the document. And that they can’t provide it “today or tomorrow… nor Monday and Tuesday because of public holiday.”

“Consequently, we can only receive and consider the report on Wednesday 28, next week,” he stated.
