Signing of 2017 budget: I meant to say “Presidency” not “President” – Ita Enang

The Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on National Assembly Matters, Senator Ita Enang, has corrected the things he said on Channels TV over who would sign the 2017 budget with President Buhari currently away in London on medical treatment and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in charge as Acting President.

Asked who would sign the budget, Mr. Enang said: “The 2017 budget will be transmitted to Mr president and the President will assent to the budget.“

“The President will assent to the budget, the acting President is in office and when the budget is transmitted, it will go through the processes and all those other questions will answer itself.”

But in an interview on Ray Power’s Political Platform this morning, Enang said he never meant to use the word, “President” but “Presidency”.

He said that what he actually meant to say was that the budget will be transmitted to the Presidency and the Acting President who is in office will take it from there.

Below is the video of what Enang earlier said on Channels.
