Barring any last-minute change, President MuhammaduBuhari will Wednesday sign the 2018 Appropriation Bill into law, THISDAY learnt Tuesday.
In fact, but for the June 12 activities, including the investiture of late Chief Moshood Abiola, Ambassador Babagana Kingibe and late Chief Gani Fawehinmi, the president would have signed the bill Tuesday, to bring to a close several months of delay in the promulgation of the nation’s financial estimates, an impeccable presidency official told THISDAY.
The president had last November laid the 2018 Appropriation Bill before a joint session of the National Assembly. However, it was not until May 16 (six months after), that the National Assembly passed the bill. Afterward, it took them another 10 days to transmit it to the president.
