According to the minister, the National Assembly said they needed to work on the 2021 Appropriation Bill.

He said, “What the National Assembly has told us in our engagement with them is that the PIB, which is a very important piece of law, is coming at a time when they will be considering the Appropriation Bill.

“And you know that this Appropriation Bill will be passed before the first of January.

“So, they have to focus on the Appropriation Bill at this time. I think that is going to delay deliberations on the PIB till the first quarter of next year.”
