Buhari signs 2016 budget into law


The 2016 Appropriation Bill was signed into law on Friday ending weeks of face-off between the Lawmakers  and the Executive.
During the brief ceremony at the signing of the budget which was held inside the President’s office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja , the President in assuring Nigerians said the government was committed to changing the structure of the Nigerian economy once and for all.
Buhari said, “This government is like no other. We are absolutely committed to changing the structure of the Nigerian economy once and for all.”
Our readers, however, have been reacting to the news of the signing of the appropriation bill into law, some expressing delight and confidence that there were better days ahead and some others maintaining that this administration may not be better than others in the past.
A reader by the name Noble said it was a victory on the part of this administration against those who were bent on weakening it.
He said, ” Most Nigerians may not understand the victory we have recorded by the show of strong will Mr president have expressed. It is victory for Nigeria. God bless Nigeria.
Corroborating what Noble said, another reader by the name Yet said, “Overtime, it has been established that it takes the strong-willed, dogged and stubborn to administer this nation Nigeria. The country is blessed to have someone that has the interest of the general populace at heart.”
Smart on his part prayed that the  Almighty God makes the implementation of the budget  possible and easy for Buhari  and his cabinet.
Another reader Odofin, in Lagos said, “I commend Buhari for insisting that right thing must be done regardless how long it takes… Buhari has earned the role of my mentor.”
But Kalu Francis Emeka in a facebook post thinks it is time for the ministers to embezzle money. He does not agree that anything positive will come out of the signing of the budget.
He said,”…The next Wahala (problem) is how the ministers will embezzle the money……all these months of hunger. The poor masses are at the receiving end.”
Besides embezzling  money as commented by Emeka, Analyst, another reader said the budget will cause inflation.
He said, “What budget..the one that is bring more inflation to the country. More money, less goods?
