Nigerian Twitter blasts government over 9-page 2016 budget

The Presidency signed the 2016 budget into law on May 6, 2016 in the presence of the embattled Senate President, Bukola Saraki; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara; the Minister of Budget and Planning, Udoma Udoma among others.

From the submission of the budget in December 2015 till the eventual signing in May 2016, it appeared that the controversies surrounding the budget would never see an end.

Since the signing of the budget on May 6, Nigerians have called for the publishing of the details of the final copy for easy access and monitoring- a request which the government did not look to obliging anytime soon.

Against the tide of events however, a leaked copy of the abridged budget found its way on the internet prompting the Federal Government to hastily make available a copy for Nigerians to officially view.

Despite the publishing of the budget, a lot of Nigerians are unhappy, discontented and these 6 tweets explain why exactly.

And that last one should worry you deeply.
