2017 budget: This quote is a malicious representation – Lai Mohammed

by Omoleye Omoruyi

The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, has debunked a previous report, saying ‘the Federal Government has not yet decided who would sign the 2017 budget’.

In a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Segun Adeyemi on Wednesday, the Minister said “this quote is a malicious misrepresentation of what transpired at the post-Federal Executive Council (FEC) Meeting press briefing’’.

“When I was asked a question relating to the signing of the 2017 Budget, my response was: when it is transmitted to the Presidency, the issue will be addressed.’’

“Anything beyond that response amounts to deliberate mischief and should be ignored,’’ he said.
