Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has denied the recent statement by the National Assembly that former leader during his administration signed budgets into law without seeing the details.

Obasanjo, who expressed surprise at the statement, said whoever said that should be asked again to prove it.

“Emm, I signed budget without details? Anybody who told you that, go and ask him again,” he said.

He stated this on Thursday, April 7, while speaking to State House Correspondents after a private meeting with president Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa, Abuja.

On what he discussed with the President, Obasanjo said he only came to share some his experiences as President with Buhari.

But when asked what the experience are, he said: “If I say I share experiences with my wife, will you ask what I discussed with my wife?.”

When asked to comment on the 2016 budget, the former president said he would need to read the budget to know what it contains and it does not before he can comment on issues arising form it.
