Osinbajo to sign 2017 Budget on Thursday

The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo will sign the 2017 Budget into law on Thursday by 9:00 A.M at the Presidential Villa.

The Newsroom learnt that representatives of the President has concluded a meeting with the leadership of the National Assembly where the date and time of the signing of the Budget will be announced.

The National Assembly on Thursday May 18, passed the N7.44 trillion 2017 Appropriation Bill after over four months since it was submitted by President Muhammadu Buhari to a joint session of the National Assembly.

Both chambers of the Assembly raised the figure from N7.30 trillion presented by the President to N7.44 trillion.

The National Assembly transmitted same to the President on Friday May 19 for assent.

However, the absence of President Muhammadu Buhari has raised a lot of questions as to who would sign the Budget.

However, Osinbajo doused the misconception when he told Nigerians that he would sign the document into law as Acting President.

Osinbajo while presenting his Democracy Day speech on May 29 also promised that the Budget would be signed soon.

About two days after the speech, there are now clear indication that the Budget would be signed into law on Thursday June 1 at 9:00 A.M.
