Some members of the civil society organizations have expressed their concerns about the implementation of the 2016 budget, one month after the 2016 appropriation bill was passed by the National Assembly.

Some of them in the meeting were especially concerned with how the Federal Government would implement the 30% earmarked for capital projects.

A total of 6.06 trillion was appropriated for the 2016 fiscal year by the Federal Government with over two trillion deficit to be financed by borrowing and using recovered loots.
