BREAKING: Buhari to sign 2018 budget wednesday

President Muhammadu Buhari will, on Wednesday, signed the 2018 budget into law, this is even as this week’s Federal Executive Council (FEC) will not hold.

Sources said that the budget will be signed at 11:00am on Wednesday.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, had last week disclosed to State House Correspondents while briefing on the outcomes of FEC meeting that the 2018 Appropriation Biill of N9.1 trillion will be assented to by President Buhari this week.

Adesina had said the particular date will be made public before the signing date.

Both chambers of the Assembly had on May 16, 2018 approved the budget estimates submitted by Buhari on November 7, 2017.

The lawmakers also raised the total figure from N8.6 trillion to N9.1 trillion, six months after it was presented.
