**President Tinubu Signs N2.18 Trillion Supplementary Appropriation Bill Amidst Controversy**

In a significant development, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has officially signed the second 2023 supplementary appropriation bill, amounting to a staggering N2,176,791,286,033 into law. The bill, which recently passed through the National Assembly, has stirred controversy, particularly regarding provisions for a presidential yacht by the Navy and a contentious allocation of over N6 billion for vehicles to the State House.

The signing ceremony transpired during a brief event at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Wednesday, witnessed by key figures including Senate President Godswill Akpabio, Speaker of the House of Representatives Tajudeen Abbas, Senate Leader Sen Opeyemi Bamidele, and others.

The supplementary budget, as highlighted by the Minister of Budget and Economic Planning, Atiku Bagudu, will address urgent national issues. Notably, N605 billion is earmarked for national defense and security to sustain progress in this critical area. Additionally, N300 billion is allocated for bridge repairs, including prominent structures like the Eko and Third Mainland bridges. Road construction, rehabilitation, and maintenance projects across the nation, ahead of the rainy season, will receive N200 billion.

To support agricultural expansion, N200 billion is set aside for seed, agricultural input, supplies, and infrastructure. The provisional wage award, agreed upon during negotiations with the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC), will be covered by N210 billion, facilitating the payment of six months’ wages at N35,000 each to approximately 1.5 million federal government employees for the months of September to December 2023.

Cash transfer payments, a significant aspect of the budget, include N400 billion for the World Bank loan-backed initiative, providing N25,000 cash transfers to 15 million households for October and November. An additional N100 billion is allocated to cover an extra month.

Furthermore, N100 billion is assigned for the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to bolster urgent capital expenditure works, enhancing infrastructure in the city. A notable N18 billion is allocated to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to support forthcoming elections in Bayelsa, Kogi, and Imo states. Additional allocations include N5.5 billion for the funding of the takeover of the student loans board and N8 billion for the take-off grant of new ministries.

This supplementary appropriation bill reflects a comprehensive approach to address pressing national needs, though not without raising eyebrows due to certain contentious allocations. The implications and outcomes of this budgetary decision are likely to be closely monitored in the coming months.
