    He added that he is trusting that it will be expeditiously considered by the Senate

    Senate President Ahmed Lawan earlier last week said the Upper Chamber is anxious to receive the MTEF and 2020 Budget from the executive and promised that the Senate will consider the MTEF within the first week of resumption.
