Wamakko Commends President Buhari's Budget For 2016

Aliyu Wamakko, former governor of
Sokoto state, has described
President Muhammadu Buhari’s
proposed 2016 budget as “the best
in the recent history of Nigeria.”[/b]
According to Premium Times, Mr.
Wammako has commended the
proposed 2016 budget , which is
believed to give 30% allocation to
capital projects. The senator also
mentioned the importance of
economic diversification, stressing
the government’s intention to
develop other economic spheres and
take away focus from oil revenues.
“No civilian administration came
nearer to 30 percent allocation to
capital projects. This is really
administrations mainly allocated
everything to the recurrent vote.
We must commend President
Buhari for this populist-orientated
budget, which will address
infrastructure deficit in the
country. We are happy that we have a
president who courageously seeks
to address the issue of economic
diversification. Remember, our
old universities such as Ahmadu
Bello University, Obafemi
Awolowo University and
University of Nigeria, Nsukka,
were not built with oil money. So
it is obvious Nigeria can survive
without oil revenues. The three major areas I
highlighted – agriculture, solid
minerals and tourism – will take
Nigeria out of its problems when
harnessed. We will forget about
oil completely. The budget also
gives a major check to address
the educational challenges in
Nigeria, including teacher quality,
school enrolment and retention,
training and retraining, among
other issues.”
