When the 2018 Appropriation Bill was presented to the National Assembly by President Muhammadu Buhari few weeks ago, one would be forced to think its passage would be done smoothly.

But few weeks after the presentation, members of the upper chamber seem not to be impressed with the budget.

The lawmakers took turns to accuse the Executive of not showing the seriousness the budget proposal deserves.

Most of them raised issues with the alleged lackadaisical attitude of heads of ministries, departments, and agencies of the Federal Government to budget defence sessions organised by the National Assembly.

They also pointed out that the December target for passing the budget was feasible, blaming it on poor implementation of the 2017 budget.
