The Citizens’ Town Hall engagement on the 2024 budget and appropriation process has commenced in Abuja.
This is coming about a week after President Bola Tinubu presented the budget proposal to the National Assembly.
Organized by the House Committee on Appropriation and the Programmes Coordinating Unit, Office of the Speaker of Representatives, the event drew notable figures such as the Chairman of the Appropriation Committee, Kabir Abubakar, his deputy, Iduma Enwo, and the immediate past National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Iyiola Omisore.
Kabir, in his welcome address, emphasized that the gathering aims to boost citizens’ participation in the appropriation process.
“This Town Hall is important in promoting the integrity of the budgeting process,” he said.
