Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Ebonyi State, Chief Stanley Okoro Emegha has poured encomium on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the content of the proposed Nation's budget estimate of 2024 fiscal year. 

The APC helmsman gave the commendation while interacting with newsmen in his office in Abakaliki, the capital city of the state. 

Chief Emegha revealed that at a glance the document tagged "Budget of Renewed Hope" which is about 20.6% higher than the total sum of the outgone year earmarked N3.25trn and N2.18trn for defence and education respectively as the highest in sectoral allocation stressing that the steps so far would help to address insecurity, job creation and poverty reduction so that Nigerians could flourish better in 2024. 

While commending the total sum allocated to infrastructure pegged at N1.32trn, Chief Emegha noted that with the former governor, Senator David Umahi  as the minister of works, there would be an improved road network to promote connectivity and overall economic development and prosperity of the people. 

"The president, His Excellency Senator Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has through the proposed financial document shown that he is truly on selfless course to build a viral nation the citizens can be proud of". 

The Ebonyi APC chairman , Chief Stanley Okoro Emegha noted that the imperativeness of the proposed budget estimate demands that the legislative arm of government should expedite action and pass it into an act of the federal government for implementation to commence in earnest. 

"Since the proposed budget estimate is top notch in every sense, I want the national assembly to make deserved inputs and allow it to become a legal document as soon as possible in the interest of we, Nigerians". 

He however, called on citizens to actively participate in the budgetary process by at least consulting the representatives at the legislature to make input before the passage of the document.
