The Federal Executive Council, FEC, on Wednesday approved the sum of N13.08 trillion as budget estimate for 2021.

According to her, the budget proposal was N379 per dollar exchange rate; oil benchmark of $40 barrel per day; and oil production volume of 1.86 million per day.

Buhari had written the National Assembly on Tuesday to notify his intention to present the 2021 budget before the joint Assembly next week.

Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, had said during plenary on Tuesday said the president would present his budget next week for quick passage of the appropriation bill into law.

The Senate President while commending the Joint Committee on Finance and National Planning for carrying out comprehensive legislative work on the 2020-2022 Medium Term Expenditure Framework and Fiscal Strategy Paper, stated that consideration of its report by the upper chamber would precede presentation of the 2021 budget estimates next week by the President.
