The Presidency has received the 2018 Appropriation Bill from the National Assembly.
The document was received Friday evening by the president’s liaison officer to the Senate, Ita Enang.
Mr Enang said he was transmitting it to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Senate president Bukola Saraki told State House correspondents Thursday evening that the bill, which is the 2018 budget, will be transmitted to the president for assent Friday.
Mr Enang confirmed to PREMIUM TIMES over the telephone that he had received the document.
The two chambers of the Assembly passed the budget estimates on May 16.
The National Assembly raised the budget figure by N500 billion, from N8.6 to N9.1 trillion.
