National Assembly budget stagnant for 13 years-The Speaker Tajudeen Abbas

Our budget has been stagnant for 13 years, but our expenditure has gone up within the period. In fact, at some points, the National Assembly budget came down from what it used to be in 2011.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Abbas,made it a point  of duty to disclose that the annual budget of the National Assembly has been stagnant for 13 years despite inflation and attendant consequences.

The speaker said that notwithstanding, the expenditure of the federal legislature has gone up within the period, but without the commensurate budgetary provisions to back it up.

He disclosed this during a courtesy visit by a delegation from the African Business Roundtable in Abuja on 27th October 2023

Abbas further revealed that the 10th House had created over 60 parliamentary friendship committees to enhance the relationship between the House and other parliaments across the world.

Two weeks ago, we increased it from 43 to 65. Just yesterday, we also included Serbia, making it 66.

He said the friendship committees needed support from outside to function efficiently, noting that the House would support any cause that would lead to enhanced relationships with other parliaments.

He was pleased to inform them that the House has thought about what he was talking about several months ago.

On July 27, we announced membership of 43 parliamentary friendship committees to find ways of improving our relations in terms of business and other aspects with them.
