Dr Ezekiel Ikupolati, Bishop of Ijumu Anglican Diocese, has urged the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo to quickly scrutinise and sign the 2017 budget into law.
He gave the call during a press conference at Iyara, Ijumu Local Government Area of Kogi, on Tuesday.
Ikupolati noted that the budget was long overdue for implementation, saying Nigerians are yearning for improved living standard.
The clergy man said, “Accent to the budget should not be delayed; full implementation must commence.

“I want to advise the Federal Government to constitute post budget committee to monitor and supervise the implementation of the budget.”
He also called on the Kogi State government to pay the outstanding salaries and pensions of civil servants so as to reduce poverty and stem untimely death among pensioners.
This is coming at a time when the Presidency admitted that Osinbajo has received the 2017 budget and is studying the document.
