Buhari sends N819.5bn Supplementary budget to NASS

President Muhammadu Buhari has sent a N819.5 billion Supplementary Appropriation Bill for 2023 to the National Assembly.

Femi Gbajabiamila, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, read the content of the cover letter on the bill to members on Wednesday.

Buhari said the additional demand for the amount for next year was due to the devastation caused by floods on farmlands and roads.
