President Muhammadu Buhari will sign the 2018 budget into law next week, Femi Adesina, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, has confirmed.
He said this after the Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting on Wednesday in Abuja.
“The budget will be signed next week,” he told journalists, adding: “We will give you the specific date when it is confirmed.”
The Senate had, one month ago, passed a budget of N9.1 trillion. The budget had been jacked up by N500 billion after Buhari proposed an N8.6 trillion budget.
