The National Assembly Nigerian aims to pass the 2017 budget by the end of March, the president of the Senate said on Tuesday.

“This month is our deadline to finish work on the budget and return it to the executive,” Senate President Bukola Saraki said after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari and the head of parliament’s lower chamber.

Buhari presented his record 7.298 trillion naira ($23.21 billion) budget to lawmakers in December.

The budget must be agreed by lawmakers before being passed back to the president and passed into law.

Heads of ministries and agencies of government have already appeared at the National Assembly to defend their budget.
