President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday urged the Senate to consider and approve N895billion as Supplementary Budget.

Senate President Ahmad Lawan read Buhari’s letter of request on the floor at plenary.

The Federal Executive Council, FEC, had earlier approved the amount.

A substantial part of the fund has been earmarked for procurement of military hardware to prosecute the war against insurgency and banditry.

The Federal Government is also expected to use part of the fund for purchase of COVID-19 vaccines and other health related needs.
