This decision came as a shock to Nigerians who for obvious reasons were not pleased. Taking to the social media, Nigerians expressed their displeasure.

While signing the N10.59t 2020 budget, the President said;

“It is my pleasant duty, today, on my 77th birthday, to sign the 2020 Appropriation Bill into law. I’m pleased that the National Assembly has expeditiously passed this Bill. Our Federal Budget is now restored to a January-December implementation cycle”
