“You know as we said, we are going to work on the budget as quickly as possible. We are conscious of its importance to Nigeria and we are not going to waste time. As soon as we come back (from break), we will get down to work and do what we have to do.

“It is a good document, it has addressed the major issues, 70 per cent capital and infrastructure. The key issues now are really implementation. We as the National Assembly will ensure that we get our oversight right.

“By and large, as a document, it is a good document and I am sure it will not have too much difficulty passing through the National Assembly. The key issue is implementation to ensure that the bureaucracy does not kill the joy of the implementation of the budget. We will do our part.”
