NABRO bill which has been in the National Assembly since the 7th Assembly was passed by the Senate and the House then but was not signed into law by former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Having been adopted by the House, the report would still require the concurrence of the Senate before it could be forwarded to the President for assent.

If passed into law, NABRO would provide objective, timely and non-partisan analysis needed for economic and budget decisions, as contained in the bill.

While presenting the report, Chairman of the Committee, Timothy Golu (PDP, Plateau) said NABRO would scale up legislative budgetary process and adequate legislative interventions to add value to the budgeting process in Nigeria.

“NABRO would go a long way in correcting the lapses being experienced in the budgeting process,” he added.
