The Presidency has denied plans to reject the 2017 Appropriation Bill passed by the National Assembly.

Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang, in a statement on Saturday, said “the executive is still verifying the estimates in the budget as appropriated for ministries, departments and agencies”.

Recall that the budget which was finally passed by the National Assembly on May 11, was delivered to Acting President Osinbajo by Senator Enang on 19th of May.
