MPs early Thursday approved 1.5 billion dalasis supplementary appropriation after a debate that lasted nearly 20 hours.
Finance Minister Mambury Njie had on Wednesday morning asked MPs to support his 1.7 billion dalasis additional spending. He said the government needed the staggering sum amid unexpected developmental services.
The MPs took time to go through the proposal and they finished debating it at around 4am on Thursday.
Their approval of the proposal came after they ruthlessly slashed 200 million dalasis from the initial sum of 1.7 billion dalasis.
