2021 Budget: My Administration Will Be Transparent, Open With Implementation – President Buhari

Buhari Stresses Need To Close Gaps In Implementation Efforts

President Muhammadu Buhari stated that his administration will be transparent and open with the implementation of the 2021 budget.

President Buhari while speaking to newsmen in Daura on Saturday, after the registration and revalidation exercise of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said that the budget aptly captured some of the visions of the administration, and all efforts will be poured in to ensure effective implementation.

“We have directed all the Ministries, Departments and Agencies to follow what is in the budget so that we can get the National Assembly to easily support the next budget,” the President said, as quoted in a statement by spokesman Garba Shehu. “We can tell them what we have received, and how it was spent.

“We are always ready to make the balance sheet available for all Nigerians and the National Assembly. We have nothing to hide.’’

President Buhari added that his administration had given more attention to agriculture in order to diversify and strengthen the economy.
