President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, presented the 2017 Appropriation Bill (budget) to a joint session of the National Assembly, stressing that his administration will focus on infrastructure in the coming year.
During the presentation, the President said his administration will focus on infrastructure particularly road and rail.
He added that, “Though we cannot control the price of crude oil, we are determined to get our production back to at least 2.2million bpd. Facilitation of business and commerce must be the major focus of government agencies. Government must not become the bottleneck”.
“In 2017, we will focus on the development of infrastructure, especially road and rail.
“During 2016, we conducted a critical assessment of the power sector, which is experiencing funding issues,” Buhari said.
