Nigerians lambast Shehu Sani, Melaye, Ben Bruce over comments on budget slash





President Muhammmadu Buhari on Wednesday, June 20, signed the 2018 budget but lamented that lawmakers made cuts amounting to N347 billion in the allocations to 4,700 projects he submitted for consideration.

The president added that the lawmakers also introduced 6,403 projects of their own amounting to N578 billion.

Following the president’s statement, some senators have aired their views on the budget slash, particularly on social media.

Senator Shehu Sani, in his reaction, said President Buhari shouldn't have signed the 2018 budget.

The senator representing Kaduna Central senatorial district in the National Assembly said the president signing the document was consent.

He wrote on Twitter: “The pen for our signatures should be propelled and controlled by the force of our conscience and not the force of compulsion.

“The president should not have signed a document he considers full of infractions. Signature, grudgingly or happily is the crown of consent."
