The lawmaker representing Bayelsa East senatorial district in the upper chambers of the National Assembly, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce, has attacked President Muhammadu Buhari ahead of today’s presentation of the 2019 appropriation bill.
According to him, after the presentation of the “budget of hope” last year, things turned worse for Nigerians.
President Buhari will today present the 2019 budget to a joint session of the National Assembly and Ben Bruce has said he has “very little tolerance for budgets with big names and little impact on the people”.
He tweeted, “Last year, President @MBuhari declared a ‘Budget of Recovery and Hope’ and three months later Nigeria was declared the world headquarters for extreme poverty.
“So today, I have very little tolerance for budgets with big names and little impacts.”
