The Presidency has disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari will sign the 2018 Appropriation Bill into law on Wednesday.
Recall that the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina had hinted last Wednesday, that the budget will be signed this week without revealing the exact day and time.
The National Assembly passed the budget on May 16, over seven months after the president submitted the proposals to the lawmaker.
But, in a statement he signed and sent to NigerianEye, on Tuesday, Adesina disclosed that Buhari will sign the budget by “noon(12 pm)” on Wednesday.
Adesina also disclosed that the weekly “Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting will not hold tomorrow, Wednesday, June 20, 2018.”
This, Adesina said was due to the “Eid-el-Fitr holidays last Friday and yesterday, which affected preparation of Council memoranda.”
