The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila said federal lawmakers are working to ensure that in line with the reforms of the ninth Assembly, they have the 2023 Appropriation Bill ready for presidential assent before the end of the year.

Gbajabiamila said this on Monday while delivering his welcome address at the resumed plenary after three weeks break for budget defence.

He said the House would convene a national summit on tertiary education reform next Tuesday and Wednesday as part of efforts to meet its legislative agenda commitments to Nigerians.

“The limited time available for budget consideration and the demands of the fast-approaching national elections further complicate the picture. However, I am confident that members of the House are alive to our responsibilities and will deliver our objectives in good time and to the benefit of our country,” he said.
