'The 2019 Budget is hopeless' - Bukola Saraki tells FG

The Federal Government has reacted to Senate President Bukola Saraki’s description of the 2019 budget as ‘hopeless’, saying the executive will not exchange words with the legislature.

This position was stated by Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, while speaking with State House correspondents Friday afternoon.

He also said the executive has fulfilled its responsibility by submitting the budget.

Mr Mohammed was reacting to a comment by Mr Saraki who recently described the budget proposal as ‘hopeless’.

“On Wednesday, we all heard the 2019 budget. That is a budget that has no hope for anybody because if you look at the statistics and the figures there’s poverty, if you look at the figures based on revenues that are coming in, there is nothing left. So where’s the future?

“There must be an alternative and that is what we hope that by this evening speaking to our candidate and vice presidential candidate, not based on sentiments. We are not voting on sentiments, we are voting on what is the need for you. How is your life going to be better? Which party offers you a better future because we see you as those who are patriotic and committed. It’s not about what you’ll get today. It’s about the great country a lot of you expect to see,” Vanguard quoted Mr Saraki as saying.

The newspaper said Mr Saraki made the comment in his capacity as the director of Atiku Abubakar campaign organisation.
