Vice president Yemi Osinbajo, has received the 2017 budget. His Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, announced this via twitter some minutes ago. There is still some controversy as to who would sign the budget.
While Laolu took to his twitter handle yesterday to say Osinbajo would assent to the budget when he is satisfied with the content, the senior special assistant to President Buhari on National Assembly matters, Ita Enang, told Channels TV in an interview that the budget would be signed by Buhari who is in the UK for a medical checkup.
Lai Mohammed had on Wednesday told state house correspondents that when the budget will be sent to the presidency, the issue of who would sign it would be addressed.
