“Sequel to presentation of the 2020 Appropriation Bill, President @MBuhari has directed the immediate suspension of international travels by all Cabinet Members & Heads of @NigeriaGov Agencies so as to enable Ministers personally lead the process of Budget defence at @nassnigeria,” a statement contained in a series of tweets by Presidency Nigeria said.

“The suspension of such travels will enable Functionaries and Agencies of the Executive Arm to provide the required cooperation with the Legislature in order to ensure timely passage of the Appropriation Bill.”
