- As Obasanjo arrives Aso Villa
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo is currently meeting with President Mohammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
This was even as the details of the 2016 budget estimates have been transmitted to the presidency.
Obasanjo, who arrived the villa at exactly 12:13pm on Thursday in a tinted black Toyota jeep marked Abj 425 PY, exchanged pleasantries with reporters who cracked joke with him on his “dancing steps” last week at Ebonyi State during the burial of the late mother of Ebonyi State governor.
“So you don’t want me to dance?” he quip with smile as he entered inside the building.
The former president’s mission to the Villa, however, yet unknown.
Meanwhile, President Buhari is in the custody of the details of the budget whose details were received by his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, on behalf of the president.
The Senior Special Assistant to the president on National Assembly Matters, Senator Ita Enag alongside Hon. Ismaila Kawu who brought the document to the Villa confirmed its receipt to State House correspondents.
He said: “The budget details have been transmitted to His Excellency, Mr. President, today. The constitutional process begins thereafter.
“We have transmitted it to the office of the president and the constitutional process of timing starts.”
Recall that President Buhari on receiving the highlights of the approved budget from the National Assembly last week, insisted on seeing the details before signing the appropriation bill into law
