Nigeria has to learn how to do things the right way. How can one go to farm without his tools. And would expect to finish the piece of land. Imagine, 2017 budget to be passed at the middle of the year it was meant. this is almost June.

By implication, the over 7 trillion will be used for 6 monts. What happens to the remnant money? diverted to private purses?

The president should be blamed for this. How can he send the budget so late as 14dec. 2016. when did he expect the senate to study it and correct? by now the 2018 should be sent to the house for early study. Any way we thank God this one did not lost.
