Saraki confirms Osinbajo WILL sign budget at 3pm
Acting President Yemi Osinbajo will sign the 2017 budget at 3 pm on Monday.
This was made known by Bukola Saraki, the Senate President, via his tweet handle few minutes ago.
Osinbajo is presently in Awka, Anambra States where he is attending the 2017 edition of the Nigerian Association of Law Teachers conference.
The delay in the signing of the budget was occasioned by President Muhammadu Buhari’s medical trip abroad and the controversy in the executive about Osinbajo’s assenting powers.
