'Buhari's Budget Moves Domestic Spending In Aso Villa From N580m To N1.7bn' by Firefire(m): 1:39am On Jan 21, 2016

‘A budget that moves domestic spending in Aso Villa from N580m to N1.7bn cannot be a budget of change’


Abuja – Sen. Eyinnaya Abaribe (PDP Abia South) on Wednesday in Abuja, berated the 2016 budget and called on President Muhammaduu Buhari to withdraw it and go back to the drawing board.

Abaribe while making contributions during the consideration of the budget, said the proposal was faulty on many grounds and could not be implemented at it was.

He said that predication of oil benchmark at 38 dollars per barrel when the crude oil price had fallen below 30 dollars per barrel made the budget unrealistic.

Abaribe faulted the government for increasing spending by 30 per cent based on borrowing.

“Mr President, my colleagues, this budget is indeed unique. After the budget presentation, the finance minister has never come to explain the details of the budget as it is normally done.

“It is a budget of change I agree, but it is a change in the wrong direction. I say it is a change in the wrong direction because it says that it is based on zero budgeting requiring all expenses to be fully justified.

“Mr President, a budget that increases spending up to 30 per cent based solely on borrowing, in what way are we justified? That is the question we want to ask the people who brought this budget.

“We know what is going on in the global economy: this budget is predicated on an oil benchmark of 38 dollars per barrel and I can now say that with oil being 28 dollars today, this budget is dead on arrival.

“The job of the opposition is to help the government to get its priorities right, so I want to please urge this government to withdraw this budget and go back to the drawing board,” he said.

The senator also faulted the adjustments made in the budget as well as allocation for spending in the Aso Rock Villa, saying that it was too exorbitant.

He said that the adjustments rather than reduce spending in areas where they were not necessary only spread it into different offices.

“Mr President, a budget that moves domestic spending within Aso Villa from N580 million to N1.7 billion cannot be a budget of change.


“We were told that in the revised budget there was an adjustment due to error, we agree but what has happened is that up to N7 billion were moved from buying vehicles and spread to offices.

“It also increased the spending that is due to renovations within the Villa.

“They are going to renovate the Villa with N3.9 billion: what else do you want to renovate there that Nigerians will see in the Year 2016?” he asked.

However, in his contribution, Sen. Ahmed Lawan (APC Yobe North) blamed the previous administration for the lack of funds due to the embezzlement witnessed in previous governments.

He said that this was the 17th budget he would be debating as a legislator and noted that not more than 40 per cent implementation was achieved in the last 16 years.

“The proposal before us is the first budget where the executive has deemed it necessary to give ordinary Nigerians genuine hope.

“N500 billion allocated for school feeding and social SAFTEY NET is commendable.

“It is time to say oil should not continue to play dominant role as we have suffered economically and politically: it is time to diversify this economy.

“The direction of the executive is the way to go. `That is, we should make every effort to have the real sector-agric mining and manufacturing.

“The budget deserves the support of everyone, including my colleagues on the other side. When we were in the opposition we supported the PDP, they should support us,” he said.

As the National Assembly is debating on the '2016 APPROPRIATION BILL', we would be helping them to 'torchlight' the proposed budget by the presidency.

This here is a clear PDP type of move.

But I thought Buhari was holier than the holy ghost and APC was a better party?

Nigerians need further clarification of this Budget from the Presidency.

Please compare 2015 Budget against 2016 and see that APC inflated the budget of the Presidency over 2015 Appropriation Bill by 14,767,489,522.00 (14 Billion Naira) shocked shocked


77% increase on Capital Allocation to the Presidency ?

The only CHANGE so far is a 1% reduction on Recurrent expenditure over GEJ's 2015 Budget.

This is serious.

I use this medium to appeal to President Mohamodu Buhari to please withdraw this budget of shame and call for full investigation of the individuals behind this monument fraud.

God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Shalom!

Have you seen my analysis above ?

This is indeed a BUDGET OF FRAUD.

Despite the austerity message/measure from APC government, Buhary still went ahead to inflate the state house budget by 50% over 2015. embarassed

Fellow Nigerians, please note that APC are planning to run a 2.2 Trillion Naira deficit budget in 2016 and will secure approx. 2 Trillion Naira loan (Both domestic & foreign loans)

Unfortunately that's the change zombies are clamouring for. Nigeria is gradually grounding to a halt. No clear plans to revive the economy. The budget is simple uninspiring and left nothing to desire.

I was expecting a total shift from the normal but it seems things won't be changing for good anytime soon.

At this perilous time of economic downturn every sensible government is supposed to imbibe austerity in all her deeds and not this proposed profligacy.

Honestly I am tired of the whole blame game between the supporters of the two parties and even between the principals.

We the citizens should just hold the ruling class responsible irrespective of their party affiliation pending when the country will be divided.

Domestic Budget for Aso Villa has Changed from 580 M to 1.7 B. That's about 100% change.

And they are blaming the past administration for looting the treasury dry. Now, there is no money to implement, the budget of "CHANGE".

I see no reason why APC Government should inflate last year budget by 50%despite the sharp drop in crude oil price.

Painfully, they slammed Nigerians with 50 Naira per deposit with immediate effect to shop up more revenue for the government.

Why are Nigerian politicians taking Nigerians for a fooool ? angry

This is pure wickedness.

Fellow Nigerians, are we really fighting corruption with all this media noises ?

The insincerity of this government is epic. On one hand they are preaching austerity measures to the citizens and on the other hand, they've decided to secretly gobble their own YAM, not with plates and cutlery like GEJ and his ministers, but with shovels and wheelbarrows.

Buhari doesn't have what it takes to save Nigeria. He's no messiah. He isn't fighting any gaddam corruption, cuz if he was, he'd have started doing something about the bribe been charged motorists by police, extra-judicial killings by men in uniform, high tarrif paid to power companies with no electricity to show for it, corruption in recruitment of government officials (he is the chief when it comes to practicing this kinda corruption as he only appoints based on nepotism and vindictiveness), corruption within APC party too, corruption in Osun, Imo, Rivers-Amaechi, Lagos-Fashola, etc.

Buhari is not ready to fight any corruption because if he is, he'll concentrate more on the one that affects the masses directly. If we want to eradicate corruption then we have to do it ourselves and damn the consequences instead of waiting for a so called "angelic being" that up till today has not provided the $2.8billion that went missing during his time as the NNPC chair..

If care is not taken, the old man will ground Nigeria before December. And Oshimole will blame Jonathan.

I have accepted that Jonathan was clueless. The problem now is, what is the adjective for someone who doubles domestic spending when income has fallen to one-third.

Bros, any ideas.
