PRESS RELEASE

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”.

This quote is a malicious misrepresentation of what transpired at the
post-Federal Executive Council Meeting press briefing on Wednesday, 17
May 2017.

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.
