Our attention has been drawn to a story in a section of the media quoting the Honourable Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, as saying ''we don't know who will sign the 2017 budget''.
quote is a malicious misrepresentation of what transpired at the
post-Federal Executive Council Meeting press briefing on Wednesday, 17
When the Minister was asked a question
relating to the signing of the 2017 Budget, his 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.
