President of the Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan has stated that the country is benefiting from the cordial relationship between the executive and the legislative arm of government.
He stated this while speaking with journalists on Friday after President Muhammadu Buhari signed the 2022 appropriation into law.
Lawan stated that the legislature and the executive arms of government played roles in passing the bill into law.
“The secret is cooperation, partnership, synergy, and that understanding and mutual respect,” the senate president said.
“Nigeria is benefiting from that kind of relationship. So that is what, in my judgment and opinion works for us, to be passing the budget at the time, that will always feel is the appropriate time before the end of the year.
“Mr. President, congratulations to him for signing the 2022 appropriation bill today, even though today is the last day of the year. But we have achieved that very significant important date of signing before the end of the year.
“The reality is what I have observed, the ability of the federal government to have his budget passed and signed before the end of the year, has made so many states to also work towards achieving that.”
