Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has received the official copy of the 2017 appropriation bill. 

Ita Enang, special adviser to the president on national assembly matters (senate), disclosed this to state house correspondents on Friday.

The budget was delivered to the acting president by Enang, who had earlier said the budget will be transmitted to President Muhammadu Buhari for assent.

Laolu Akande, special adviser on media and publicity to the acting president, said the budget is undergoing prompt and diligent consideration.

“Appropriations bill now officially received in the acting president’s office and undergoing very prompt and diligent consideration,” Akande said.

On Wednesday, Enang suggested that the budget will not be signed by the acting president but by the president himself.

“It will be ready tomorrow (Thursday) all things being equal, and it will be transmitted to the president, all things being equal tomorrow. The budget will be transmitted to Mr president and the President will assent to the budget,” Enang had said.

Later on Wednesday, Akande gave some insight to the budget controversy, saying the acting president will sign the budget at the appropraite time.

“Just so we are clear: when the time comes, everything is set, & he is satisfied, Ag. President Yemi Osinbajo will assent to the 2017 Budget,” Akande had said.
