President Buhari Signs 2016 Budget by Apelex(m): 12:22pm On May 06, 2016
The President has just signed the 2016 appropriations bill into law..details shortly


President Muhammadu Buhari has finally signed the 2016 budget.
Buhari’s assent finally brings an end to the controversy surrounding the budget.

The National Assembly had in April transmitted details of the budget to the president after it had passed the bill on March 23, but the President returned the document back, citing omission of certain capital projects. This was worked on and sent back, but again the Presidency refused to sign.

Recall that the Deputy Chairman of the House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Jonathan Gaza, yesterday said the corrected version of the 2016 budget has been resent to the President for consideration.

Speaking with journalists at the National Assembly complex, Gaza said the budget was transmitted to the Presidency through the Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, Senate, Senator Ita Enang.

Available report has, however, revealed that all grey areas have now been addressed and the budget has been signed.

Details later………

He did it in the presence of the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, and the chairmen of the National Assembly appropriation committees who had arrived the Presidency for the signing ceremony.

Today’s event comes after the National Assembly submitted a clean copy of the budget to the President.

The President had withheld assent after some alterations were noticed in the document.

The government announced yesterday it had mapped out 34 strategic priority programmes and projects it intended to achieve with the 2016 budget.

These include a capital spend minimum of 30% annually, an appropriate and predictable exchange regime by the end of 2016, increased low interest lending rate of 9%, self-sufficiency in tomato paste in 2016 and rice production by 2018.

It also plans to increase local production of maize, soya beans, poultry and livestock and to stop import.

Finally, the government can settle down and start fixing the economic problems of the country. Kudos to the president for standing his ground and ensuring that all the major projects proposed in the budget are not watered down or removed by the legislatures for selfish reasons. For once, we have a budget that is implementable and not one paddled with ridiculous constituency projects by the National Assembly.

Nigerians voted for change and the process leading to the passage and signing of this budget clearly showed a departure from the past where Ghana must go bags play a major role in the passage. But most importantly, implementing the 30% capital allocation to the letter and the fulfilment of so many promises made by the APC to the Nigerian people will go a long way in confirming if truly, change is here.

Just hope the Aboki went through the budget cover to cover before signing, and is ready to take responsibility for any error discovered afterwards.

No more blame games when the time comes. He should also make haste to publish the details, lets confirm that =N=1.7B feeding appropriation for Aso villa.

It's now "make or break" time for this administration...

Bubu got his wish for a "clean" appropriation bill, any success or failure now rests squarely on his shoulders....

Now we are expectant of the promised "change" , God will help him.. Amen..
