President Muhammadu Buhari will present the 2023 budget to the National Assembly in September 2022.

This was revealed by the Director General, Budget Office of the Federation, Ben Akabueze, who made this known at an event on Tuesday, in Abuja.



Akabueze who was represented by the Director, Expenditure (Socials) in the Budget Office, Fabian Ogbu, said the Nigerian leader will present the 2023 appropriation to the National Assembly on the said date, baring any last-minute change.


He stated that the federal government is determined to ensure consistent and timely preparation, submission and approval of annual budgets as part of its Public Financial Management (PFM) reforms.


Ogbu, however, lamented that MDAs do not study the Budget Call Circular in detail and as such make mistakes that should ordinarily be avoided if they had complied with the relevant sections of the Budget Circular.


He said the 2023 budget is also being prepared in tandem with extant federal government policies and guidelines as articulated in the 2023 Budget Call Circular and other relevant laws/regulations.
