President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday signed the Finance Bill into law to support the implementation of the 2020 budget.

Buhari made this known via his Twitter handle saying “I am pleased to announce that this morning I signed into Law the Finance Bill, 2019.

“This is the first time, since the return of democracy in 1999, that a Federal Budget is being accompanied by passage of a Finance Bill specially designed to support its implementation, and to create a truly enabling environment for business and investment by the private sector.

“I thank the leadership and members of the Ninth National Assembly for the hard work and support that have gone into the passage of the landmark Deep Offshore and Inland Basin PSC Amendment Bill, and the Finance Bill; both vital to the successful implementation of the 2020 Budget,” the president tweeted.
