2017 Budget Will Be Signed Soon – Akabueze

The Director-General, Budget Office, Mr. Ben Akabueze, says he is optimistic that the 2017 budget will soon be signed.

He said this on Tuesday in Abuja at a round table organised by Time Economics on issues concerning the economy.

Akabueze said that to address issues of delayed budget passing and implementation, the Federal Government had plans to ensure that from 2018, the nation returns to a predictable financial year.

He said the government had presented a draft for an Organic Budget Law to the National Assembly, which, when passed, would ensure punctual drafting and approval of subsequent proposed budgets within a stipulated time.
