The house of representatives has suspended deliberations on the 2019 appropriation bill.
The house postponed the debate slated for Thursday plenary till its next sitting on Tuesday.
Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the house, announced that deliberations on the bill was postponed because of late distribution the relevant documents to members.
He said the documents were distributed to the lawmakers on Thursday morning.

The house had on resumption from its annual recess on Wednesday deferred deliberations on the budget bill until Thursday due to the death of Abayomi Ayeola, one of its member.
However, Dogara gave an assurance that the lower legislative chamber would expedite action on the bill.
