The upper chamber of the National Assembly has received the report of the 2020 budget from its Committee on Appropriation.

The committee Chairman, Senator Barau Jibrin, laid the report of the N10.33 trillion budget presented to the National Assembly by President Muhammadu Buhari on November 8 during Wednesday’s plenary.

Also on Wednesday, the Clerk of the Senate, Nelson Ayewoh, administered oath of office on Senator Smart Adeyemi of the All Progressives Congress (APC)) as the new senator representing Kogi West.

Adeyemi defeated Dino Melaye of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the re-run senatorial election ordered by the Court of Appeal in Abuja that was concluded last weekend.
