President Buhari and his ministers are reportedly studying the details of the 2016 budget carefully, a source said.

The document was handed to Buhari at about 12.00 noon on Thursday, April 7, 2016 by his Chief of Staff, Alhaji Abba Kyari.

Vanguard reports that a source said “The aim of studying the document presented by the NASS by the executive was to compare what was eventually approved with what was sent in by the President.”

Another official who spoke to Vanguard said “There is a groundswell of opinion that Mr. President should sign the bill into law if there was no substantial deviation that could affect the performance of the budget.”

Adding that “President Buhari was eager to sign the bill into law to ensure immediate implementation and to give a new lease of life to the people and arrest the hardship in the land.”

There are strong indications that the budget will be signed before Buhari jets out to China next week.

President Buhari had earlier said he will not sign the document till he sees the final details.
