Your 6.06 Trillion Naira - How We Wan Spend Am?
After much back-and-forth on the 2016 Budget, the Federal Government finally made public the details of the budget earlier this week. Whilst the spotlight still remains on this, citizens continue to demand an #OpenNASS of Senate President Bukola Saraki requesting that the details of the N115bn budget for the National Assembly also be made public.
Democracy Day & Public Holiday
Things are hard for most Nigerians – increased fuel price; high cost of food and other consumer products; non-existent power supply; insecurity in certain parts of the country, to name a few. Our press release last week addresses our concerns on the general state of the nation 1 year after.
A few weeks ago, we asked Mr. President to talk to Nigerian citizens before he travelled, again! We look forward to his Democracy Day address on May 29th.
In case you missed it, Monday, May 30th will be a public holiday. Enjoy the day!
