Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, has signed the 2017 Appropriation Bill into law.
Osinbajo appended his signature on the document at about 4:40pm inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The signing ceremony took place at the state house Abuja in presence of senate president Bukola Saraki, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, Ministers and other government functionaries.
Here’s what Nigerians are saying about the recently signed budget.
May God grant Buhari good health, and Osinbajo the courage to continue leading in his absence. May #Budget2017 heal Nigeria of recession.
