Senator Shehu Sani, the Senator who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the 8th national assembly, has described the 2020 budget as a budget of doom to Nigerians.



President Muhammadu Buhari had presented the 2020 appropriation bill with total expenditure of N10.33 trillion to the national assembly on Tuesday.

While presenting the budget, Buhari said the federal government is targetting a revenue of N8.155 trillion; N2.64 trillion from oil revenue, N1.8 trillion from non-oil tax revenue and N3.7 trillion from other revenues.

Buhari said the appropriation bill is based on the new VAT rate “which will help finance health, education, and infrastructural programmes.”




But reacting on his official twitter handle on Wednesday, Sani said Buhari’s 2020 budget will take Nigerians out of Sodom and safely land them in Gomorrah.



His words, "The Budget will take us out of Sodom and safely land us in Gomorrah.




Sani is well known for his criticism of the Buhari administration and this latest tirade comes as no surprise. But don't let his reaction fool you into thinking Buhari has been sleeping on the wheel since 2015.

The President in a remark made during his budget presentation at a joint session of the National Assembly in Abuja, said, he has suffered several health problems due to his immense commitment toward fixing a battered country handed to him by his predecessors.



He said, prior to making the presentation, that he was currently suffering from cold flu as is evident in his poor voice as he stood in the chamber. He then, attributed his ailment to his hard work as the President of the country.


He said, "Before I proceed to read the details of the budget, let me apologise for my voice.

"As you can hear in my voice, I have cold because I am working hard."
