Despite Controversy, Acting President Osinbajo Receives 2017 Budget

Per Second News----Acting President Yemi Osinbajo Friday received the 2017 budget and is now expected to assent to it any moment from now.

The document was submitted to him on Friday by the Senior Special Assistant to the president on National Assembly matters, Senator Ita Enang behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

 
Enang had fueled controversy last Wednesday when he told a television station that the signed bill would be sent to President Muhammadu Buhari in London for his assent before it would be brought back to the acting President.
 
The presidential aide has now backtracked from that position, telling State House corespondents after submitting the document to Osinbajo, that the acting President would now sign it after the necessary procedure.
 

Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed had also told reporters that a decision on who would sign the document between Osinbajo and President Muhammadu Buhari who is currently in London, the United Kingdom for medical consultation would be taken at the appropriate time.

But Mr Laolu Akande, spokesperson for the acting president had stated that Osinbajo will sign the document once he is satisfied with what was transmitted back to the Executive from the National Assembly.

It is now clear that the acting president will sign the 2017 budget.
