Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), will present the 2023 Appropriation Bill before a joint session of the National Assembly on Friday. As a result, security has been beefed up inside and outside the National Assembly Complex in Abuja.
At 10:07 am, the President made his way inside the temporary chamber of the House of Representatives, which served as the setting for the event.
At a ceremony that is slated to begin at 10 in the morning, President Buhari is going to submit the N19.76 trillion budget of the Federal Government to the parliament.
On the grounds, there is a significant presence of people from the armed forces, paramilitary organisations, and other safety agencies.
For this particular mission, members of the Nigerian Army, the Nigerian Police Force, the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, the Department of State Services, the Federal Road Safety Corps, the Federal Fire Service, and sergeants-at-arms were all called upon to provide their services.
Security personnel have been stationed at key spots inside and outside the facility, and entrance procedures for both cars and individuals inside the building have been made more stringent.
Certain members of the employees, vital service providers, and journalists were each given a badge that allowed them entrance inside the premises.
