A lecturer of political economy at the Osun State University, Professor Elijah Agbaje, says it is high time Nigerians began to ask questions from their leaders if they want a better life for themselves.
Elijah made this known while speaking on Crest FM’s Programme The Crest Breakfast Show yesterday, where he gave an insightful analysis into possible implications and expectations from the proposed 2023 budget of Nigeria as highlighted by the minister for finance, Budget, and national planning.
Elijah explained that holding leaders accountable in all forms of transparency will ensure that leaders deliver on their promises and make the nation better, even According budgetary provisions
On the plans to increase borrowing to finance the budget, the economic analyst noted that Nigerians must be ingenious and try to look inside more in a bid to wean itself off incessant borrowing as Nigerians would find out in the long run that a lot of things had been at stake all the time the country had gone borrowing.
The federal government has proposed to borrow over 11 trillion naira to finance the proposed 2023 budget deficit, a development far above the stipulated threshold in the fiscal responsibility act.
