The Presidency has reacted to enquiries on why President Muhammadu Buhari is yet to sign the 2018 appropriation bill into law.

“This document was handed to Senator Enang, the SSA National Assembly after the close of office on Friday six-and-a-half months after it was handed to the parliament, precisely November 7th, 2017, said Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.


“The bill as passed by the National Assembly was received here on Saturday because the office of the Chief of Staff operates at weekends.”

The National Assembly on Friday night had transmitted the harmonised 2018 Budget to President Buhari for assent.

Both chambers of the Assembly had on May 16, 2018 approved the budget estimates submitted by Buhari on November 7, 2017.

The lawmakers also raised the total figure from N8.6 trillion to N9.1 trillion, six months after it was presented.
