In exercise of the presidential authorities, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday signed three executive orders that will significantly change some of the ways government business and operations are conducted in the country forthwith.

Ahead of the signing, Mr. Osibanjo held an interactive session at the old Banquet Hall of Presidential Villa with all relevant government officials, including ministers, permanent secretaries and heads of departments and agencies among others.

The session was meant to directly engage government officials who would be implementing the orders and the new instructions.

Specifically, Mr. Osinbajo signed three executive orders giving specific instructions on a number of policy issues affecting:

*the promotion of transparency and efficiency in the business environment designed to facilitate the ease of doing business in the country,

*timely submission of annual budgetary estimates by all statutory and non-statutory agencies, including companies owned by the Federal Government and

*support for local contents in public procurement by the Federal Government.

      Good question, it means there will no more spending with impunity, local contractors will be treated fairly, there will be accountability, Boost foreign investors in our government policy as long as it is consistent which is why mr acting president signs the executive order.

    @Premuim Times, How about this…
    “The 2017 budget will be transmitted to Mr president and the President will assent to the budget. The President will assent to the budget, the acting President is in office and when the budget is transmitted, it will go through the processes and all those other questions will answer itself.” – Ita Inang (on Channels TV)

    Why are you not reporting this, ehh? If Mr. Inang had said vP Osinbajo will sign the 2017 Budget it would’ve been flashed allover your newspaper as Breaking News, how come you are now avoiding substantive news for inconsequential crap Mr. Dwarfie is allowed to append his signature to? Biko, get in touch with the loquacious Femi Falana ati drunkard, Prof. Itsa Sagay to explain Section 145 again to our most educated illiterates of the South West for their interpretation of this latest nonsense from Ita Inang. Does it mean President Buhari will sign the Budget into Law for Osinbajo to coordinate as the Senior Prefect he has been demoted to? Hahaha chai, next time, respect must be given to Sen. Ohuabunwa for spotting what the entire Egbaland could not see yet, they poured expectives at the son of the soil.

      Put things in strategic perspective. SW had unbroken 8yrs in the Presidency, OBJ, who decimated his Northern VP to the extent of having Family Kayode, El-Rufai & Ribadu tongue lash Atiku during FEC meeting.
      Power then returned to the North but was cut short by the hand of God. Meanwhile VP GEJ was also treated with contempt till he became full president.
      Fast forward to 2016/2017 and the hand of God is apparently stalking the North (Buhari) again. Everyone​ should understand the trauma of the North in these unpredictable weeks.
      Osinbajo is not having it as bad as VPs before him. Nonetheless he too is being curtailed by a traumatized North.

        Shut up dia… Ota Gorilla knelt down and begged Atiku to allow him complete his 8yrs. Smart Nigerians have not forgotten that little embarrassing episode. Nkapia… Go and change your tampons and stop stinking up this atmosphere with silly lies. Olosi

          Onyeoshi eleribu.
          Your bipolar is now being compounded by selective amnesia.
          OBJ knelt to beg Atiku during primaries for re-election.
          After that what happened? OBJ sacked all special assistants working for VP Atiku, starved Atiku’s office of funding so much that Atiku confessed that he was running the VP office with his own personal money. Then OBJ brought 3 junior cabinet members to come and insult a sitting VP Atiku in full executive council meeting.
          If that is not SW putting the North in its place, what is it?
          Take your medicine before commenting next time. Akuko!!

          Did you hear Seraike Dickson confession about your hero and how he wasted the opportunities of the Ijaws. You talk of Atiku who hasn’t been able to make it to the presidency despite so called influence. A man who couldn’t win Adamawa for himself in 2007. Continue to live in denial, if you are sad that Premium Times is not patronizing you, stop coming here.

            Dr. Dumbo was a tout and a waste, if he was your mama’s hero he was not mine… try another line, I hated that crook more than I hate Awooloshi. I am Igbo core and a founding member of the APC so, get lost. Oloshi.
