Senate to Commence Recess on Friday, Announces Resumption Date

Senate President Godswill Akpabio has announced that the Senate will commence a recess starting December 1, with plans to reconvene on December 12, 2023. The decision comes shortly after President Bola Tinubu presented the 2024 budget to the National Assembly. Upon resumption, the focus will shift to the defence of the 2024 budget by Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) of the Federal Government.

To ensure a thorough budget defence process, Akpabio has urged President Tinubu to instruct ministers and heads of agencies to avoid travel engagements that could hinder their participation in defending their budget estimates before relevant committees. The Senate President emphasized the National Assembly’s commitment to supporting the administration and expressed optimism about achieving significant milestones for the nation under President Tinubu’s leadership. The legislative agenda reflects dedication to the Nigerian people, with the Senate prepared to work collaboratively for the betterment of the country.
