Buhari Under Pressure To Review 2015 Budget

The Centre for Social Justice urged Muhammadu Buhari's administration to review the 2015 budget, which according  to the body contains "frivolous expenditure".

Group director Eze Onyekwere, made the position known through the June 14 documents released in Abuja. See some extracts below.

"The 2015 Federal budget as passed by NASS is not the budget of change that Nigerians have been waiting for. It needs to be re-engineered, restructured and overhauled. A dire economic situation needs some adjustments and reforms or else, the country will not just stagnate, it will enter the reverse gear...

"We still had a lot of votes for welfare packages after the salary, remuneration and perks of office of the staff had been voted. This is an expenditure head unknown to our law.

“Many agencies still got outrageous sums for refreshment and catering services as if they are running a restaurant chain. It made no sense as it was wasteful.
