2016 Budget, Nigeria’s Best Ever – Opadokun

A renowned legal practitioner and rights activist, Chief Ayo Opadokun, has described the N6.08 trillion 2016 budget presented by President Muhammadu Buhari as the best ever in the nation’s history.  Speaking with journalists during the 13th edition of Ayo Opadokun’s Christmas Carol in Offa, Kwara State, the former General Secretary of the defunct National Democratic Coalition (NADECO), said the budget is practically pro-masses.

He said with the allocation of larger proportion of the budget to capital expenditure, Nigeria is moving towards real change, all round transformation, growth and development.
Opadokun said since the discovery of Nigeria as a country, the nation has never allocated such a huge percentage of resources to infrastructural development.
On the breakdown of the budget, Opadokun said with the 30 per cent votes for capital expenditure as well as a reasonable proportion for education, Nigeria has begun a journey of certainty and reality.
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.
The Nation.
