President Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday, presented the 2024 budget for the Federal Capital Territory Administration to the House of Representatives for consideration and passage.

However, Mr President's letter seeking the passage of the budget, which was read on the floor of the House during the plenaries remained silent on the estimates.

Part of the letter says "in line with the provisions of sections 121 and 299 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999, the Honourable Minister of the Federal Capital Territory has prepared the 2024 budget proposal of the FCT which is here before you for the consideration and approval by the National Assembly."

“In addition, the budget proposal takes into consideration, the 2024/2026 economic recovery and growth plan as well as key assumptions in the 2024 budget

“The FCTA is prioritising improvement in health care services, job creation, youth empowerment, and increased productivity in agriculture to lift many citizens as much as possible out of poverty.

“I hereby forward the 2024 statutory budget proposal of the FCTA and I trust that it will receive the kind consideration and expeditious approval of the House of Representatives. Please accept the assurances of my highest regards.

The Speaker, Abbas Tajudeen, who presided over the plenary, directed that the request be forwarded to the Committee on Appropriation for deliberation after reading the letter.
