The National Assembly has finally passed the 2017 appropriation bill into law after so much delay that kept the document on the shelf for five months.

According to Premium Times the House of Representatives passed the 2017 budget in the lower chambers.
The green house of legislature agreed on the report by the committee on appropriation of the house and approved a total sum of ?7.44 trillion.
The upper chamber on its own aspect, approved the report by its own committee on appropriation headed by Senator Goje Danjuma after spending almost one hour at an executive session.
The Senate checked the report bit by bit before passing it to law after dissolving itself into the Committee of Supply.
