Nigeria 2018 budget will be made public – Senate

Majority leader of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has again assured that the 2018 budget of the National Assembly would be made public.


He stated this on Wednesday while briefing journalists on the objectives of the ‘Open NASS’ initiative designed to increase public access to the operations of the National Assembly.

Lawan, who heads the special committee set up to organise “Open Week Event’ billed to take place from June 25 to June 29, described the initiative as an evolving one, adopted by parliaments all over the world.

According to him, “Increasingly, governments around the world are promoting initiatives in transparency. Governments that are open and transparent are more accountable to their citizens and are less likely to be corrupt.

“Openness generates trust in government and also paves the way for meaningful participation by citizens and more informed and better policies. Around the world, an increasing number of parliaments are being more proactive in the provision of information.

“This has become easier with the proliferation of the internet and access to Information Communication Technology (ICT). Many parliaments are now uploading significant‎ documents such as daily order papers, draft laws and committee reports for distribution.

“It is against this background that the national assembly has initiated the Open Week to open the national assembly to the public.”

Lawan emphasised that the event would broaden public understanding of legislative functions and processes and engender interactions between legislators and key stakeholders.

“Series of activities during the ‘Open Week’ will include interactive sessions with various interest groups, question and answer sessions.

“It also includes exhibitions and tours, planned over a four-day period to raise awareness on legislative initiative and activities,” he said.
