“This budget, christened the budget of stabilisation, which I am signing into law, will see to more infrastructural and human capital development for the good people of the state. Democracy without physical and infrastructural development will lead us to nowhere.
“For us, we need to deepen this democracy tirelessly, with the limited resources, particularly after seeing a lot of economic decline because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this budget, we have the largest share of it going to youth and women improvement in 2021. That will mean that we will have a better society, where most of our youths are entrepreneurially developed.”
