Senate President Bukola Saraki lead 8th Assembly are fighting against Nigeria infrastructural development. 

President Muhammadu Buhari appears set to return the 2016 Budget to the National Assembly to rework because what the lawmakers sent to him on Thursday for assent, according to Presidency sources, fell below his expectations. 
The sources confirmed to Sunday Vanguard that the President felt disappointed that provisions for major national projects and programmes that could turn around the economy were either outrightly removed or funds for them ridiculously slashed by the lawmakers.
Some of their dubious amendment to the budget are:
*Lagos-Calabar N60 billion coastal railway removed from the budget 

*Idu-Kaduna rail line cut by N8.7 billion 

*Major federal roads slashed 

*Polio eradication, essential drugs for HIV/AIDS expunged 

*Agric/water resources re-allocated to constituency projects.
