The national assembly will receive the 2023 budget presentation from President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

Ben Akabueze, the director general of the budget office of the federation, made this announcement in Abuja at a training session on using the government’s integrated financial management information system to prepare budgets.

As part of its Public Financial Management (PFM) reforms, the federal government under Buhari is determined to ensure consistent and prompt preparation, submission, and approval of annual budgets, according to Akabueze, who was represented by Mr. Fabian Ogbu, Director, Expenditure (Socials), in the Budget Office.

He also decried the fact that MDAs do not carefully read the Budget Call Circular and as a result make errors that would typically be prevented if they had followed the pertinent sections of the Budget Circular.

Akabueze declared

“The main goal of this training is to provide continuous learning to equip budget personnel with the requisite knowledge, skills and the tools they require to prepare and submit the 2023 budget.

“It has been observed that MDAs do not study the budget circular in detail, as such make mistakes that should ordinarily be avoided if they had complied with relevant sections of the budget cycle.”

According to Channels Television, Akabueze noted that the 2023 budget is being prepared concurrently with current federal policies and guidelines as stated in the 2023 Budget Call Circular and other pertinent laws and regulations. He also said that one of the training modules would cover important information and sections to pay attention to in the 2023 Budget Call Circular.
