Nigerian senate president Bukola Saraki gave the submission deadline for 2019 budget report, said till Thursday 11th of april all reports must be submitted.

The president in his words said; “Ahead of the April 16 approval of the money bill, all budget reports must be submitted”, and it was later made known by the vice chairman Sunny Ogbuoji that only 24 out of 61 sub-committees had submitted reports.

According to Saraki ;

It is unfortunate that only 24 committees have submitted their reports. Last week, we all took a decision here that we are not going to waiver on our position. Our position is very clear: that all committees should submit (their budget reports). And those that don’t submit, then the Appropriations Committee should use the Executive submission.

“That position is still where we are. And I want to appeal to all our committees that you really have just till tomorrow (Wednesday) to make sure that your reports get to the Appropriations Committee because Thursday, you must lay this report.
