I never said FG doesn’t know who will sign 2017 budget – Lai Mohammed

Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, has said that he did not say that the federal government does not ‘know who will sign the 2017 budget’

The minister in a statemen Tuesday, signed by his Special Assistance, Segun Adeyemi, said he was miss quoted and that the report was ‘a malicious misrepresentation of what transpired at the post-Federal Executive Council Meeting press briefing on Wednesday, 17 May 2017’

The Minister’s statement read thus, ‘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.’

For a better society
