    GEJ did you read that thing before signing it, cause you have a habit of signing nonsense papers (anti gay bill) without reading them properly.

    Someone please explain to me how it works in Nigeria. How do you sign the budget for 2014 pretty much at the end of May for what you want to spend in 2014? When does nigerias financial year start?

    Budget that won't favour students, the average man. It all balls down to the same old story. Even with the fact that a larger chunk of the budget goes to security; Police still dey collect #20 and security in the country is Zero, Power supply is epileptic, our roads are death traps and the government hospitals are nothing to write home about....Education nko? the list is just endless....those benefiting the budget knows themselves

    I bet you there would be little or no diffence from the status quo where the bulk of the budget is squandered in their salaries instead of pressing matters viz security, job creation, power, agriculture, education.

    carry on mr president, after all when yaradua died, his ghost ruled nigeria for many months before he was finally laid to rest. nobody complained and nobody marched to the aso rock, even boko haram has been there during the time of yaradua, obasanjo and atiku, what did they do, the boko haram started in their time, if they could not stop it when it was very small, how do they imagine you to stop it suddenly now that they have grown in to another nation.i wonder why they are complaining. dont mind them, don't even allow their foolish talk to get to you. carry on!

    Back in the day, the budget for a given year was read out by the President on January 1st. I guess all the funds expended from January to may 23rd will remain unaccounted for.
