ABUJA, Sept 11 (Reuters) – Nigeria’s government has proposed
a budget of 10.07 trillion naira ($32.93 billion) for 2020, the
finance minister said on Wednesday.
Zainab Ahmed was briefing journalists after the first
cabinet meeting since ministers were sworn in last month. The
proposal, up from the 2019 budget of 8.9 trillion naira, will
need to be approved by parliament before being sent to the
president to be signed into law.
