2016 Budget'll Focus on Power, Transportation, Others, Says Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari said on Tuesday in Ibadan that the next year's budget of the All Progressives Congress administration will focus principally on power generation, transportation, entrepreneurship and small scale businesses to accelerate the change agenda he promised Nigerians during the electioneering campaign.
To this end, he reiterated the commitment of his administration to shape the future of the country through a three-prong approach of creativity, technology and character.
The president, who was the Visitor to the University, spoke through his deputy, Professor Yemi Osinbajo,  giving the assurance on Tuesday at the Foundation Day ceremony of the University of Ibadan, being the grand finale of the 67th convocation ceremony of the premier university.

He pledged better days for Nigeria, emphasising that the character of Nigerians was very important in the reformation of the country, a deficit of which would negatively affect whatever idea one may have.
Osinbajo identified a series of challenges confronting the nation, including "infant mortality, extreme poverty, insecurity, climate change, the rabid activities of terrorists, all of which he described as monsters which cannot be allowed to prowl the street without being controlled.
“Government of the Federation is committed to responsive governance focusing on the ordinary man who daily looks for job. But how many jobs can be generated?
"Our budget will focus on technology, power, transportation, access to solar power, promotion of entrepreneurship small scale businesses. The future of Nigeria is bright. Our nation will yield its fruits for her people, make us live decent. By the grace of God, we will succeed." President Muhammadu Buhari said on Tuesday in Ibadan that the next year's budget of the All Progressives Congress administration will focus principally on power generation, transportation, entrepreneurship and small scale businesses to accelerate the change agenda he promised Nigerians during the electioneering campaign.
