Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on National Assembly matters, Ita Enang, has overruled Acting President Osinbajo's position of signing the 2017 budget.
Recall that Osinbajo’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, had stated that his principal will sign the budget when satisfied with its content.
Laolu tweeted on Wednesday night that; “Just so we are clear: when the time comes, everything is set, and he is satisfied, Ag. President Yemi Osinbajo will assent to the 2017 Budget”.
But in an interview with Channels TV also on Wednesday, Enang stated that the budget would be transmitted to President Buhari who will sign it and then transfer it to acting President, Yemi Osinbajo.
He also confirmed that the Presidency received the budget on Wednesday afternoon.
“The 2017 budget will be transmitted to Mr president and the President will assent to the budget.
”The acting President is in office and when the budget is transmitted, it will go through the processes and all those other questions will answer itself,” he said.
