President Muhammadu Buhari will present the 2017 budget proposal to the National Assembly on December 14.
This is contained in a letter to the Senate read by Senate President Bukola Saraki yesterday in Abuja.
The letter reads: “I crave the indulgence of the National Assembly to grant me the 10.00 hours on December 14, to formally address a joint session of the National Assembly on the 2017 budget proposal.’’
The President will also address the National Assembly on plans to get the country out of recession.
“Please extend, Mr Senate president the assurances of my highest regards to senators as I look forward to addressing the joint session.”
