Nzekwe said, “There is no liquidity in the system and this has affected the nation’s capital market as the government is the biggest spender in any economy.

“People do not have sufficient funds to throw around by investing in the stock market as they used the little they have to keep the body and souls together.”

On his part, Dr Titus Okunronmu, former Director, Budgetary Department, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), noted that the passage of the national budget had in the last three years suffered unexplainable delays.
