Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege has assured that the National Assembly is determined to pass the 2022 budget before the year runs out.

Senator Omo-Agege stated this when he hosted his former classmates from the Nigerian Law School, Class of ’86 (The Centennial Class) in Abuja led by ‘Class Captain’ Oladipo Okpeseyi SAN.

President Muhammadu Buhari last Thursday presented the 2022 budget of N16.39trillion to a joint session of the National Assembly.

According to Omo-Agege, early approval and signing of the Appropriation Bill into law will ensure planning, bring about enhanced productivity and efficiency in the management and application of the nation’s resources.

He explained that Nigerians are the ultimate beneficiaries of the return to the January to December budget cycle, stressing that this will guarantee full implementation of the economic, infrastructural, social investments and other developmental programmes contained in the budget.

“The budget process is ongoing. In the next 30 days, we will conclude it and pass it before we go on Christmas break, sometime in December 16,” he said.

On the request for the completion of a moot court at the Nigerian Law School Headquarters, Bwari, Abuja by the Class, the Delta Central lawmaker promised to assist in completing the project. He was excited that his class has taken on such a laudable project.

Speaking on a bill sponsored by his colleague that seeks to increase the number of law school campuses in Nigeria from six to 12, the federal legislator emphasised the need to reach out to all stakeholders to determine its acceptability or otherwise.
