The Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo yesterday presided over the Federal Executive Council meeting on behalf of the President who was busy concluding trade agreements with President Biya of Cameroon whose work visit to Nigeria ended yesterday.
At the meeting, the council approved the Strategic Implementation Plan of the 2016 Budget. Although the Budget is yet to be signed by the President, Osinbajo while speaking at The Platform; a speaking event which brings together individuals from various walks of life to proffer solutions to the economic crisis facing the country assured that the budget would be signed soon.
The event which held last week saw the Vice President respond to questions about the state of the nation and spoke on the change agenda and aspirations the Buhari administration is working on while highlighting ways the citizens as a whole could add their efforts into assisting the implementation of many of the administration’s plans.
While the budget still awaits being signed, even as plans for implementation is underway, many Nigerians await with eager anticipation and itchy fingers how far the plans will be effectively implemented.
