President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, has taken the Federal Government to task over the 2018 budget; saying how the budget is implemented will be the defining moment of the Buhari Administration.
Saraki said this at the joint session of the National Assembly when President Muhammadu Buhari made the presentation of the 2018 Budget Proposal.
He noted that the country needed to increase non-oil revenue, adding that infrastructure development must be a continuous priority of the administration.
“In the implementation, we must ensure that projects are not overpriced, while people must see a future for themselves in every corner of this country, ” he said.
He counselled the FG to eliminate what he described as “unnecessary waste” in the budget implementation.
