The 2017 appropriation bill recently passed by the National Assembly has been handed over to the Acting President, Mr Yemi Osinbajo.

This was confirmed on Friday by his spokesman, Mr Laolu Akande.

With this development, the President will review the submitted 2017 budget and then sign it into law.

Mr Akande posted on his Twitter account on Friday that the, “2017 Budget, Appropriations bill, now officially received in the Acting President’s office and undergoing very prompt and diligent consideration.”

In the past few days, there had been debates on who will assent to the 2017 appropriation bill; President Muhammadu Buhari, who is away in London for a medical check-up, or the Acting President.
