Security beef up as Buhari presents budget today

Some parts of the National Assembly Complex was painted on Monday in preparation for the presentation of the 2020 Appropriation Bill by President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday (today).

The budget presentation ceremony is scheduled to start at 2pm.

The management of the federal parliament had also beefed up security within and around the complex.

Special accreditation arrangements were made for journalists, security agents and members of staff who would be on duty for the ceremony.

One of Punch correspondents who visited some banks and shops in building was told that businesses had been asked to close shops on Tuesday.

A member of staff, who did not want to be named, also said some workers who were not directly involved in the logistics to host the President would stay away from the complex during the budget presentation.
