BreakingNews 12/6/17: Updated: Osinbajo signs 2017 budget

[ Masterweb Reports: Isiaka Wakili reports ] - Acting President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday signed the 2017 appropriation bill into law. Osinbajo signed the fiscal document shortly after the Presidency released a statement quoting President Muhammadu Buhari from London as giving him the backing to do so.
 
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, stated: "Following the receipt of a full brief on the 2017 Appropriation Bill as passed by the National Assembly, and to buttress the unity at the highest level of government, President Muhammadu Buhari has indicated that it is in the interest of the nation's economy for the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, to sign the Appropriation Bill into law.
 
"In a letter dated June 10, 2017, which he personally signed and addressed to the Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udoma Udo Udoma, the President also said he was "pleased by the joint resolution that the Executive would submit next year's budget proposals by October 2017 and the National Assembly will conclude the Appropriation process by December 2017, so that the country can return to a normal fiscal period from next year onwards."
 
Osinbajo signed the document at 4:45pm inside the conference room of the Office of the Vice President at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja.
 
The signing was witnessed by Senate President Bukola Saraki, House of Representatives Speaker Yakubu Dogara, Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, Senate Leader Ahmed Lawan, House Leader Femi Gbajabiamila, Chief of Staff to the President Abba Kyari, Finance Minister Kemi Adeosun, Budget and Planning Minister Udoma Udoma, Information Minister Lai Mohammed, among others.
 
The acting president thanked the leadership and members of the National Assembly for completing work on the 2017 Appropriation Bill.
 
He said while the process of preparing and processing the bill was much smoother than the 2016 Appropriations Bill, there were no allegations of errors, or mistakes on the part of the executive as there was a significant improvement in the quality of the preparation as well as the presentation.
 
He said during the budget defence sessions, there were far fewer reported cases of acrimony, or hostile wrangling between the MDAs and the National Assembly committees this year than in the past.
 
"From the reports we received, the sessions were generally conducted in a friendly atmosphere. There is no doubt that our democracy is maturing," Osinbajo said.
 
He said the final presentation and the signing of the budget had been considerably delayed largely due to disagreements "we had about the changes introduced to our 2017 Budget proposals by the National Assembly."
 
He said the executive took the view that the changes fundamentally affected some of its priority programmes and would make implementation extremely difficult and in some cases impossible.
 
He stated: "I must say that the entire leadership of the National Assembly led by the Senate President and the Speaker, adopted a commendably patriotic and statesmanlike approach to our engagements on resolving these critical issues.
 
"In sum, the engagements yielded acceptable results . The most important being that the leadership of the National Assembly has given us a commitment that the National Assembly will re-instate the budgetary allocations for all the important executive projects, such as the railway standard gauge projects, the Mambilla Power Project, the Second Niger Bridge, the Lagos - Ibadan Expressway etc. which they had reduced to fund some of the new projects they introduced.
 
"This re-instatement will be by way of an application for virement by the Executive which they have agreed will be expeditiously considered and approved by the National Assembly. It is as a result of that understanding and the outcome of our detailed engagements that we feel able to sign the 2017 Appropriations Bill into law today."
 
He said the executive and the leadership of the National Assembly had jointly resolved to return to a predictable January to December fiscal year.
 
"It is a particularly important development because this accords with the financial year of most private sector companies, underscoring the crucial relationship between government and the private sector."
 
Osinbajo said on the understanding that the executive would be submitting the 2018 budget to the National Assembly by October 2017, the leadership of the National Assembly had committed to working towards the passage of the 2018 budget into law before the end of 2017.
 
The acting president sais the signing of the budget would trigger activities in the domestic economy which would ead to job creation and more opportunities for employment, especially for the youth.
 
He said the executive would be returning to the National Assembly to seek upward adjustments by way of virements in relation to a number of critical projects "which had received inadequate provision in the budget just passed by the National Assembly."
 
Osinbajo said: "The 2017 Budget, which I have signed into law today, is christened "Budget of Economic Recovery and Growth" and reflects our commitment to ensure strong linkage between the medium-term Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP) recently launched by His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari and the annual budgets.
 
"It is designed to bring the Nigerian economy out of recession unto a path of sustainable and inclusive growth. The budget has a revenue projection of N5.08 trillion and an aggregate expenditure of N7.44 trillion. The projected fiscal deficit of N2.36 trillion is to be financed largely by borrowing.
 
"Let me assure those who have expressed concern about the growing public debt that we are taking several actions to grow government revenues as well as plug revenue leakages. This is because, notwithstanding the fact that our borrowings are still within sustainability limits, we are determined, in the medium term, to reduce our reliance on borrowings to finance our expenditures.



 
"Details of the budget, as approved by the National Assembly, will be made available by the Honourable Minister of Budget and National Planning.
 
"As you are all aware, our economy is already signaling a gradual recovery as growth is headed towards positive territory. First quarter GDP, at -0.52% compares favourably with -2.06% in the first quarter of 2016.
 
Inflation is declining - down to 17.24% from 18.74% as at May 2016. Our external reserves are now US$30.28 billion as at June 8, 2017 up from US$26.59 billion as at May 31, 2016.
 
"We are also gradually instilling confidence in our exchange rate regime. This improvement in GDP growth and other macro-economic indicators is largely attributable to our strategic implementation of the 2016 Budget as well as stronger macroeconomic management and policy coordination.
 
"I am confident that the 2017 Budget will deliver positive economic growth and prosperity – one that is self-sustaining and inclusive. In this regard, the 2017 budget will be implemented in line with our Economic Recovery and Growth Plan.
 
"Over the 2017-2020 plan period, we are focusing on five (5) key execution priorities, namely:
 
*Stabilizing the macroeconomic environment;
*Agriculture and Food security;
*Energy sufficiency in power and petroleum products;
*Improved transportation infrastructure; and
*Industrialization through support for micro, small and medium-scale enterprises (MSMEs).
 
"The 2017 budget includes provisions that reflect these priorities. To demonstrate our commitment to following through our Economic Recovery and Growth Plan, the 2017 budget allocates over N2 trillion to capital expenditure, principally infrastructure.
 
"For instance, we are committing over N200 billion to improve transport infrastructure such as roads and rail; over N500 billion for investments in works, power, and housing; and N46 billion for Special Economic Zone Projects to be set up in each geopolitical zone.
 
He said the 2017 budget provides a lot of opportunities for partnerships with the private sector because the government alone cannot achieve the overarching goal of delivering inclusive growth.
 
"To help the private sector thrive, we are determined to create an enabling business environment. We are already recording verifiable progress across several areas ranging from a new Visa-on-Arrival scheme to reforms at our ports and regulatory agencies.
 
"The Online business registration process has reduced time required for business registration from 10 to 2 days. It is expected that the Executive Order on transparency and efficiency in the business environment will make it even easier for investors to get the permits and licenses they require for their businesses.
 
"Pursuant to our commitments to the Open Government Partnership, we recently issued an Executive Order that will promote budget transparency, accountability and efficiency. We want to make the Federal budget work more efficiently for the people.
"Thus, beyond the huge provisions for investments in critical infrastructure, we have mandated Government agencies to spend more of their budgets on locally produced goods. This will open more opportunities for job creation with benefits for government in form of tax revenues.
 
"We are also working hard to improve our revenue collection efficiency so that we can achieve our revenue projections. While we are deploying technological tools to enhance collections, the implementation of the Treasury Single Account (TSA) will continue to contribute significantly to improving transparency and accountability over government revenues.
 
"Our fight against corruption is yielding positive results. Some of the recoveries are included in the 2017 Budget which will be expended on identifiable capital projects. Already, we are beginning to see some improvement in the quality of public expenditure. This is great motivation for us to remain resolute in our fight against corruption so that economic prosperity is enjoyed by all Nigerians."
 
Osinbajo assured that the implementation of our 2017 budget would bring added impetus to the ongoing economic recovery, saying the government would intensify its economic diversification efforts to expand opportunities for wealth creation and employment, thereby creating inclusive and sustainable growth.
 
"Our path to progress and abundance is clear. The tools are in place and the resilient, resourceful and hardworking Nigerian people are set to go. I have no doubt that by the grace of God, the bleakness of recession is about to witness the uplifting dawn of abundance," he said.
