The N6.08 trillion 2016 budget presented by President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, is the best ever in Nigeria’s history. Former scribe of the National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) and Convener of the Coalition of Democrats for Electoral Reforms (CODER) Chief Ayo Opadokun, has said.
Speaking with journalists during the 13th edition of Ayo Opadokun’s Christmas Carol in Offa, Kwara State, Opadokun said the budget is practically pro-masses.
According to him, with the allocation of larger proportion of the budget to capital expenditure, Nigeria is moving towards real change.
He noted that since inception, Nigeria has never allocated such a huge percentage of resources to infrastructural development.
He held that the budget gives thorough and adequate attention to all sectors and technically represents the wider interests, aspirations and collective wishes of Nigerians.
