The Appropriation Committees of the two chambers submitted a harmonized budget report for the consideration and adoption.

In the Senate Chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriation, Senator Mohammed Danjuma Goje submitted the report while the Chairman, House Committee on Appropriation, Mustapha Dawaki, did the same.

Both chambers did not consider the report of the N8.83 trillion budget, proposed by President Muhammadu Buhari for the 2019 fiscal year.
