President Bola Tinubu recently forwarded the N2.17 trillion 2023 Supplementary Appropriations Bill to the Nigerian Senate, which it cleared.

The Senate Committee on Appropriations Chairman, Senator Solomon Olamilekan Adeola (APC Ogun West), presented the report of the harmonized sittings of both houses on the bill, which was adopted before passage.
