Buhari is Not in a Hurry to Sign 2016 Budget – Femi Adesina

President Muhammadu Buhari will not rush to sign the 2016 budget transmitted to him last week by the National Assembly, his Special Adviser  on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, said at the weekend.

Adesina said on his Facebook wall that Buhari would sign a budget that would “do good to the maximum number of Nigerians”.

“He will not rush to sign a document that may become un-implementable,” he said in a television interview excerpt he posted on his wall.

According to him, the president will sign a document that the executive agrees with and will not just sign for the sake of signing.

“And he has said himself that he would scrutinize the budget, look at the provisions ministry by ministry.  The ministers will have to agree that what has been approved for them will do the work that they need to do…

Unless that is achieved, I can’t be presumptuous to tell you that the president will sign immediately. Don’t forget that the constitution gives the president an allowance of 30 days after the budget is sent back to him,” he said.
