PDP berated the Federal Government for trying to use their bogus welfare programme and phantom capital projects as cover and conduit to syphon the funds to satisfy partisan interests, particularly to settle huge campaign debts.

“It is obvious that this budget is an extension of the campaign promises of the APC government, presented as a manifesto filled with bogus promises which implementation will be inconclusive, thereby allowing the APC to once again deny their promises.

I'm trying not to sound like supporting the opposition but it's really not worth it if we have to borrow money to finance campaign promises like feeding school kids, paying unemployed graduates N5k monthly. If we don't have the money to do them we don't have borrow to do them.
