Reacting to the Bill presented by President Buhari to a joint session of the National Assembly on Tuesday, Enwegbara wondered if Nigeria had not “come to the point of agreeing that this business of federal government running Nigeria’s economy should be finally brought to an end? “For how long do we have to have such a prodigious federal government, a government that can’t stop its borrowing spree? “For how long should we allow this government to continue to borrow its oversized consumption, where less than two million government workers have directly and indirectly be responsible for 90% of the country’s annual spending? “For how long should the federal government has to decide where and why road or water etc. should be constructed in Nigeria?” According to him, debt service to revenue ratio is currently approaching 80% with domestic debt approaching 70% of the country’s overall debt stock. Is Nigeria heading for bankruptcy?


Respected economist and public affairs commentator, Mr Odilim Enwegbara has described the 2020 Appropriation Bill as “a budget of bankruptcy”.

It was so strangely generous with people like you to present easily what exactly many people would’ve supplied for an electronic book in making some bucks for their own end, specifically now that you could have tried it in the event you decided. The techniques as well worked to provide a great way to know that other people online have a similar zeal really like mine to know the truth good deal more on the subject of this issue. I believe there are some more pleasurable sessions up front for individuals that look into your blog.
