The Nigerian Senate will pass the 2017 budget next week Majority Leader, Ahmad Lawal on Thursday announced.

According to him the legislature wanted to pass the Bill in March but could not due to some circumstances. The recent delay was caused by the raid on the house of its Appropriation Committee Chairman, Sen. Danjuma Goje, by the police, he said.

He however added: "The good news is that we are doing everything possible to catch up the lost time and that by the grace of God I am thinking that by next week we should be able to finish our own work and pass the budget for Mr President to sign.’’

The Presidency in 2016 promised to pass the 2017 budget before the beginning of the year.
