Taofeek Adaranijo, a member of the House of Representatives, representing Agege Federal Constituency, Lagos State, said the full details of the 2016 Appropriation Bill would be forwarded by the National Assembly to President Muhammadu Buhari for assent before the end of the week.
President Buhari had refused to sign the budget owing to the failure of the National Assembly to send the full details of the N6.06tn harmonised budget passed by the two chambers.

Adaranijo speaking shortly after inspecting some projects in Lagos, stated that the Senate and House of Representatives’ committees on appropriation had been working together to ensure that the president got the full details of the budget before the end of the week.
He said, “The delay was caused by the lapses identified in the budget. As responsible parliamentarians, the lapses identified had to be sorted out first.”
Adaranijo, who is a member of the House Committee on Works, inspected ongoing road constructions by the Lagos State Government in collaboration with the Agege Local Government Area and the Orile-Agege Local Council Development Area.
Adaranijo, also inspected the ongoing construction of the Abule Egba flyover and some borehole projects which he sponsored for the people of his constituency in Magbon, Olusanya and Ago Igbira.
