  • I think it's way of reminding or telling them that they need to be accurate with some financial figures they tend to read out to Nigerians, especially for a government that comes with the mantra of change and fighting corruption. The US is beginning to doubt the credibility of this Government if you ask me and I feel it's so damning on them, remember when it comes to fiscal accountability, give it to them. It's should be a Wake up call on the federal government to set the record straight....

  • It has now become a normal thing in Nigeria for the government to delay so much before publishing the budget, and this is all because of the way citizens doesn't stand up to them, no one ever does. But i am glad that it has come to the notice of the US.

  • The thing there is that even if a sanction is placed on Nigeria if they don't publish their budget, Nigeria won't still publish it because our government knows that when they publish it, people will find out that the government has been embezzling funds allocated to bettering the nation. I wonder what kind of nation is Nigeria.
