Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has cleared the air over the signing of the 200 budget when eventually transmitted to him by the National Assembly.

in a tweet from his twitter handle @akandeoj, Senior Special Assistant to the Acting President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande said when the time comes, Osinbajo would assent to the budget.

“Just so we are clear: when the time comes, everything is set, & he is satisfied, Ag. President YemiOsinbajo will assent to the 2017 Budget,” he tweeted.

There has been controversy over the signing of the budget with a report alleging that the Information Minister Lai Mohammed said he did not know who would sign the budget.

But Mohammed had distanced himself from the report. He said this in a statement by his Special Assistant, Segun Adeyemi entitled “I Never Said FG Doesn’t Know Who Will Sign 2017 Budget – Minister.”

He said: “Our attention has been drawn to a story in a section of the media quoting the Honourable Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, as saying ”we don’t know who will sign the 2017 budget”.
“This quote is a malicious misrepresentation of what transpired at the post-Federal Executive Council Meeting press briefing on Wednesday, 17 May 2017.
“When the Minister was asked a question relating to the signing of the 2017 Budget, his response was: ”When it is transmitted to the Presidency, the issue will be addressed.
“Anything beyond that response amounts to deliberate mischief and should be ignored”.
