A member of the House of Representatives, Rep. Omosede Igbinedion (PDP-Edo) on Wednesday said the 2017 budget, if well implemented would take Nigerians away from the current hardship.
Igbinedion, who expressed the optimism in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja, said that with the budget, the much needed succour the people were seeking would definitely come to them.
“I can see a great improvement more in the education sector and I am just praying and hoping that the budget alleviates the sufferings of the people.
“I will like to have seen great emphasis on agriculture in trying to diversify the economy.
“Nevertheless we are hoping and praying the 2017 budget as presented by the president will help us get out of the current recession.
“It is important we find a way to stimulate the economy as we hope for the best,” she said.
Igbinedion said that with the desired change promised in the change mantra, and with the implementation of the 2017 budget, the sufferings of Nigerians would come to an end soon.
“I pray the 2017 budget further alleviates the sufferings of Nigerians who are greatly yearning for the desired change promised with the change mantra.
“I hope that the National Assembly is able to work hand in hand with the executives to make sure the budget is also implemented.
“That is if the government is able to implement the budget to at least 80 per cent to end sufferings of Nigerians,” Igbinedion said
