No Date Fixed Yet For Signing of 2017 Budget - Presidency

According to the Presidency, there is no fixed date yet for signing of the 2017 budget by the acting president, Yemi Osinbajo. Some media platforms earlier today reported that the 2017 budget would be signed into law by the acting president tomorrow Thursday June 1st.
However the Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on National Assembly Matters, Ita Enang, has denied the reports.
In an address to newsmen, Enang said that no date has been fixed yet as consultations regarding the budget is still ongoing.

Recall that some weeks ago, controversy surrounding who would sign the budget came up when Lai Mohammed told state house correspondents that when the senate sends the budget to the Presidency, the person to sign the budget would then be decided.
