According to him, to achieve this target, the Executive and the Legislature must partner harmoniously.

Under the Bukola Saraki-led National Assembly, Nigeria’s budget spent between six and seven months before passage by the Senate and the House of Representatives.

But Lawan, according to a report by Daily Trust, said if the budget was presented in September ending or early October, the consideration and passage would be done before December break as he stressed that the National Assembly will not tolerate any delay by MDAs.
