He, however, expressed the hope that the executive would always ensure early submission of the budget enable the assembly deliberate and pass it in good time. “Well, this is a crucial thing that worries everyone, every Nigerian wants to see the National Assembly passes the budget in good time and what we have in mind we’ve campaigned with that and it’s something both of us in the National Assembly have bought into – that we’ll pass the budget within three months by the grace of God.
