In his remarks as special guest of honour at the 20th wedding anniversary dinner of Senator Adeola and his wife Temitope, the minister commended the sacrifices and exertion of the senator in the process leading to passage of budgets in relation to the consideration and passage of Medium Terms Expenditure Framework and Fiscal Strategy Paper(MTEF/FSP) before the president can present the appropriation bill for the consideration and passage by the National Assembly.

But I can testify that in course of passing the MTEF/FSP, Senator Adeola has worked overnight in the office for many nights working on the document to ensure that the report of his committee get to the floor of the Senate in time for consideration and passage. That is a sacrifice I can testify he did as chairman of the Senate Committee of Finance.”
