National Chairman, All Progressive Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, today communicated faith that the National Assembly won’t ‘distort the 2019 budget’ as introduced.
He likewise depicted President Muhammadu Buhari’s introduction of the 2019 Budget as “a successful outing.”
Oshiomhole talked in a meeting with the News Agency of Nigeria not long after Buhari introduced the financial plan at the National Assembly in Abuja.
“I think it was done very well and analytically well presented. It covers all the issues.”
“It gives account of the previous budget, how it was implemented and why we will have to consolidate, going forward. I think it was a successful outing.”
“I’m impressed, I’m excited and I pray that the National Assembly will not distort it in a way that will distort the tenet, well-thought out outcome,” he stated.
Responding to the disorderliness during the spending introduction, Oshiomhole stated: “I think the lawmakers generally agreed that the budget was good.
“All the requirements of the law have been met, namely, to lay the budget. How the senators behaved thereafter is their privilege.”
On his concern, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama, essentially explained the spending delivery as “excellent.”
