"4 More Years!" - Reps, Senators Hail Buhari As He Presents 2019 Budget (PHOTOS) / Rowdy Session As Buhari Arrives National Assembly To Present The 2019 Budget / Hope Rises For Ambode As Buhari, Govs Resolve Rift (2) (3) (4)
|Hope Rises For 2019 Budget, Oil Price Rebounds To $60 by Mrakeli: 6:10am On Jan 10|
Hope for the implementation of the 2019 budget was rekindled yesterday as crude oil price climbed around three per cent to rebound to $60 per barrel.
This followed the extension of talks between the United States and China in Beijing, which raised hopes that the world’s two largest economies would resolve their trade standoff.
The United States West Texas Intermediate (WTI) traded at $51.36 per barrel, up $1.58, or 3.17 per cent, the first time this year that WTI has topped $50.
Reuters reported that the international Brent crude rose by $1.63, or 2.78 per cent, at $60.35 per barrel.
Brent price hit last year’s high of $86 in October, a development that encouraged the federal government to predicate this year’s budget on oil price of $60, against the $50 per barrel oil price benchmark proposed in the Economic Recovery Growth Plan (ERGP).
The federal government also predicated the budget on the production of 2.3 million barrels per day of crude oil.
Also N305 was proposed as exchange rate to the dollar.
But before the presentation of the budget to the National Assembly, oil price dropped to $48, raising fears on the capacity of the federal government to fund the budget.
However, with the efforts by the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to reduce the excess inventory in the market, oil price rose by 12 per cent in December.
Both crude price benchmarks added to Tuesday’s two per cent gains and have now been on the rise for eight straight days – their longest rally since June 2017.
The trade talks in Beijing were carried over into an unscheduled third day yesterday, amid signs of progress on issues including purchases of US farm and energy commodities and increased US access to China’s markets.
“Talks with China are going very well!” United States President Donald Trump tweeted, without elaborating. State newspaper, China Daily said yesterday that Beijing was keen to put an end to its trade dispute with the United States, but that any agreement must involve compromise on both sides.
The World Bank expects global economic growth to slow to 2.9 per cent in 2019 from three per cent in 2018, it said in a semi-annual report released late on Tuesday.
More fundamentally, oil prices have been receiving support from supply cuts started at the end of 2018 by the OPEC and allies including Russia.
The OPEC-led cuts are aimed at reining in an emerging supply overhang, in part because U.S. crude output surged by around 2 million barrels per day (bpd) in 2018 to a record 11.7 million bpd.
However, US crude stocks fell less than expected last week, while gasoline and distillate inventories rose more than expected, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) said yesterday.
Distillate stockpiles, which include diesel and heating oil, rose by 10.6 million barrels, more than five times the expected 1.9 million-barrel increase, the EIA data showed.

A foolish country will keep relying on crude oil for its existence. But one day na one day and that crude will be obsolete...then will see how this pathetic nation will survive

Oil prices are naturally unsteady so unpredictable. Meanwhile, the cost of petrol will still be high in Nigeria while APC government subsidy will continue to boost

But that doesn't stopped FG from continuing with diversification of our economy. Oil prices can never be stable.

Nigeria and confusion. But we read recently that FIRs generated 5.3 trillions and how can't such money be used to fund the budget? As well we still have some revenue generating agencies that could boost the revenue of the country. I think I need enlightenment on this issue.

Always just hoping on oil.
I mean I understand that Oil is the mainstay of our economy as at now, but should it remain the same? Should we be held at the mercy of capricious oil prices forever?
I'm sure Labor in Nigeria is cheaper than China, so how come Global Corporations haven't moved operations to Nigeria? Does our illiteracy rate have something to do with this?
There are so many other things Nigeria has to offer to be able to generate income rivaling that of Oil sales, but it seems once money is coming in from somewhere (oil in this case), we just get complacent and never bother exploring and exploiting other forms of income.

Amumaigwe:he is trying his best in that aspect.
|Re: Hope Rises For 2019 Budget, Oil Price Rebounds To $60 by davodyguy: 7:02am On Jan 10|
Amumaigwe:To answer some critics, unfortunately we still have to rely on oil to survive.
OBJ and Jonathan had the chance to diversify but they didn't do that.
Under Buhari, it would be difficult to diversify without first stabilizing the economy which not stable at the moment and earning is very poor at the moment.
We got into recession in 2016 due to oil price dropping and in 2017 we got out of recession due to oil price rising.
We still have a very fragile economy. They need to fix infrastructure first and when there's savings, they can then look at other non oil sector for income.
Fix electricity. : It's only oil revenue that can fix this capital intensive infrastructure
Fix roads: It's only oil revenue that can fix this capital intensive infrastructure
Fix rail lines: It's only oil revenue that can fix this capital intensive infrastructure
Increase number of cargo delivery Ports.
Once above are done, Agriculture would come up. But for now, you need oil money badly
