Recall that Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said there is no decision yet on who will assent to the 2017 budget.

He said this Wednesday afternoon while addressing State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting.

Reacting to a question on whether the budget will be signed by Osinbajo or taken to Buhari in London, the minister said: “When it (the budget) is transmitted to the Presidency, that decision (on who to sign) will be taken‎.”

Mohammed also stated that if there were any discrepancies in the budget presented and the one passed, the executive would report to Udoma for harmonisation.

Enag also said: “In respect on the budget, it was only this morning that the Minister of National Planning informed the council that the budget has been passed. He has not sent to us individually, copies of the passed budget.

“We now need to look at it against what we sent, and if there is any discrepancies, we will report back to the Minister of Budget and National Planning on harmonisation.”
