House of Representatives Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila has said President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to present the 2023 budget to the National Assembly in October.

Gbajabiamila gave the hint on Wednesday after inspecting hearing rooms 028 and 234 of the House.

The rooms will serve as the temporary chamber due to the ongoing renovation of the House complex.

“I am hoping that the budget will be presented latest by first week of October”, NAN quoted him saying.

The lawmaker added that configuration of the temporary chamber would be done before September 20, date for resumption of plenary.

“I can see everybody upstairs, everybody presiding can see everybody upstairs and can see everybody downstairs.

“Where we are right now, it will be ready on Tuesday, this work started in August, and it started few weeks behind time but for a good reason.

“So far, between August and now, giant strides have been made. You can see the old chamber has been ripped apart,” he said.

He added that the new renovations will match the best standard all over the world; I am quite impressed with the work so far and I will encourage them to double the pace.
