The annual ceremony of laying of budget always have tolls on businesses within the National Assembly complex.
We observed that banks in the complex are shut down and other vendors selling food and other commodities will not be opened for business.
There are several banks within the complex, however, none of the banks opened today.
It would be recalled that both chambers of the National Assembly passed the revised Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) with some few adjustments to the proposal by Buhari.
Also, the House on Wednesday held a long closed door session. It is believed that the session discussed the budget presentation.
President Buhari is currently presenting the budget as at the time we are filling this report.
