President Buhari backs vice president Yemi Osinbajo to sign the 2017 budget

President Buhari who is currently on medical leave in the United Kingdom, has given approval to vice president Yemi Osinbajo, to sign the 2017 budget.

This was disclosed in a statement released by the Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu. Read the statement below.

"Following the receipt of a full brief on the 2017 Appropriation Bill as passed by the National Assembly, and to buttress the unity at the highest level of government, President Muhammadu Buhari has indicated that it is in the interest of the nation's economy for the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, to sign the Appropriation Bill into law.

In a letter dated June 10, 2017, which he personally signed and addressed to the Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udoma Udo Udoma, the President also said he was "pleased by the joint resolution that the Executive would submit next year's budget proposals by October 2017 and the National Assembly will conclude the Appropriation process by December 2017, so that the country can return to a normal fiscal period from next year onwards."

Good for them. I think Garba Shehu should also make public the President's state of health.

This country is a huge joke ..the moment president BuHari wrote to the national assembly quoting the relevant sections of the constitution authorising The VP to act as the president He ceases to be the country's president and therefore does not have the constitutional power to give approval for signing a budget. Until he writes again to the NAtional assemble informing them that he is ready to resume duty from his medical leave. The VP has the constitutional powers as acting president to presides over the affairs of governance without the nonsense contained in this report.

This is rubbish, the man is the acting president as such does not need approval from Buhari to carry out the duties of his position. So this is rubbish.
