President Muhammadu Buhari cannot come with some of his aides during the presentation of the 2021 Appropriation Bill before a Joint session of the National Assembly, the Senate has said.

The senate recently revealed that the president will not be accompanied by many people and only very important and relevant personalities to the budget will be allowed into the chamber.

According to Senator Ahmad Lawan, the budget presentation will not be longer than 60 minutes due to the current Covid-19 situation.

He added that everyone who cannot be present physically will be allowed to join the presentation virtually.

His words, “The joint session normally take place in the chamber of the House of Representatives. It is going to be the same. It will take place there but by this time around because of the situation of COVID-19, we have made arrangements to observe Social distancing in the chamber.”

“We also have to wear or face masks mandatorily. We are going to also abridge the entire event because we will be many there. So the entire event will last just about an hour.”

“From the entry of the President into the chamber and addresses and the presentation and laying will be just an hour event so that we are able to comply with the requirements of the COvID-19 protocol.

“Mr. President to this time around will not be accompanied by many people on the entourage. Only few people – very key and relevant to budget – will accompany Mr. President into the chamber. I think by the arrangement those of them that have little to do with the budget will join virtually what will happen.”
