I have cold because I’m working very hard, says Buhari during budget presentation

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday presented the 2020 appropriation bill at the joint session of the national assembly.

The president presented a budget proposal of about N10.73 trillion as the federal government’s total estimated expenditure for 2020.




Buhari during the budget presentation said that he is suffering from cold.

He, however, attributed his ailment to his hard work as the President of the country.

Immediately after observing protocols and before presenting the details of the bill, the President apologised for his voice.

Buhari asked the lawmakers and other dignitaries present in the lower legislative chamber to “pardon” him because his voice was unclear.

He said, “Before I proceed to read the details of the budget, let me apologise for my voice.

““As you can hear, I have a cold as a result of working very hard to meet your deadline.”

In his remarks, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, sympathised with the president over his cold.

“Mr President, sorry about your cold,” Gbajabiamila told the President while delivering his address shortly after Buhari presented the 2020 Appropriation Bill to a joint session of the National Assembly.

In his remarks, Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house of representatives, sympathised with the president over his cold.

Last week, the national assembly approved N10.73 trillion as the federal government’s total estimated expenditure for 2020.

The president had proposed a sum of just N10 trillion. The increase by the lawmakers amounts to N792 billion.
