President Buhari is scheduled to sign the 2022 Appropriation Bill on Friday, December 31st, barring any last-minute alterations.
Mr Garba Shehu, the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, verified this to Channels TV on Tuesday, December 28. According to him, the National Assembly has sent the budget for 2022 to the President, who will sign it into law by 10 a.m.
This comes just a week after the National Assembly’s House of Representatives and Senate chambers passed a N17.126 trillion budget, raising the benchmark crude price from $57 to $62 per barrel.
Nigeria would be able to maintain its one-year budget cycle if the budget is signed before the end of the year.
In other news, Toju Oluwatoyinbo, a Nigerian clergywoman, has stated her dissatisfaction with married people and even Christians who indulge in proper kissing and smooching while performing in a film.
She added that the one that really baffles her is older men who are old enough to be fathers kissing and smooching younger girls and younger guys doing same with older women. She emphasized that, aside from following what the Bible says, our “culture” is opposed to doing so.

Take a look at what she wrote below…
I generally have an ish with kissing in movies, but focusing on Nollywood now… Some people will say they are actors, well … I just feel it’s somehow, especially when they are married… and/or Christians. Correct kissing and smooching. Ah!!
The one that I’m still trying to understand is when older men kiss and smooch younger girls or younger guys get with older women.
I guess some people would also be like – so how then do we make romantic movies? For here and now, all I can say is that if we hadn’t been desentisised or ‘trained’ to this point, we wouldn’t have an issue with less sexually inclined scenes.
I may not have a full perspective, but I think I do have a point- especially for married and Christian folks.
Let’s even assume we don’t want to dissect scriptures on the matter, I feel like our culture still has it’s place. Not everything in culture is bad. Some things don’t need to evolve.
