 MAJOR POLICY THRUST OF THE 2020 BUDGET
The 2020 budget proposal, which encapsulates government’s political, economic and social development and strategies, therefore aims at giving the citizenry a sense of belonging. The proposal is aimed at restoring confidence in Government and our people, rebuilding our dilapidated infrastructure and putting the State on a pedestal for sustainable economic development. This will focus on road infrastructure, improving on the ‘ease of doing business’ and social infrastructure – education, health services, water, sanitation and the like.

The 2020 Budget is anchored on our manifesto, the TTC report as well as recommendations of the various Commissions of Enquiries that have turned in their findings.
At this point, I reiterate that our Administration owes as a duty the prudent and judicious use of State resources, respect for rule of law, as well as ensuring accountability and transparency in all projects, programmes and activities.

 FOCUS OF THE 2020 PROPOSED BUDGET
The 2020 budget is six-pronged, thusly:


  •  Rebuilding Infrastructure – especially roads and smart electricity sub-sector.
  • Agriculture – by laying the groundwork for sustainable agriculture.
  •  Health delivery – with focus on health insurance, primary healthcare and cleaner environment.
  •  Human Capital Development – especially technological advancement, technical education, Women and Youth empowerment etc.
  • Ease of Doing Business (EoDB).
  •  Job/Wealth Creation and Youth Empowerment.

These six-planks of the budget will be achieved through:

• Enhancement of Internally Generated Revenue (IGR)

• Aggressive road reconstruction programmes

• Enabling environment for private sector investment

• Smart Public Private Sector Partnerships

• Capacity building especially for the youth, provision of Agricultural inputs and development of agricultural infrastructure.

• Mutually beneficial State – Local Governments partnerships

• Health insurance, primary healthcare and cleaner environment.

 Basic Assumption of the 2020 budget

A. MACRO-ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT

Mr. Speaker, Honourable Members of the State Assembly, the 2020 Budget is predicated on the following assumptions:

  •  FGN’s Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) and Fiscal Strategy Paper (FSP).


  •  FGN’s adoption of an oil price benchmark of US$57 per barrel, daily oil production estimate of 2.18 mbpd and an exchange rate of N305 per US Dollar for 2020.


  •  National Growth of 2.93% in 2020, driven largely by non-oil output, as economic diversification accelerates, and the enabling business environment improves. However, inflation is expected to remain slightly above single digits in 2020.


  •  FGN’s increase of the VAT rate from 5% to 7.5%. As such, the 2020 Appropriation Bill is based on this new VAT rate. The VAT Act already exempts pharmaceuticals, educational items, and basic commodities, which exemptions we are expanding under the Finance Bill, 2019.

B. REVENUE

I. Given the very fact the IGR is the sine quo non to budget success, the 2020 Budget has a total budgeted recurrent revenue of N140,330,473,912, representing 71% of the budget.

C. RECURRENT EXPENDITUREPERSONNEL COST

Very much unlike the 2019 budget that has N15,304,901,626 as personnel cost for Ministries , the proposed 2020 budget has N 8,949,496,411 as its personnel cost which represents a 41.5% reduction in Personnel Cost.

OVERHEAD COST

The overhead cost in the proposed 2020 budget will relatively increase to N 34,702,219,005 from the N17,112,658,110 that was approved in the 2019 budget. This is also as a result of increase in government activities, restoration of full workers’ salaries, allowances and the observance of the principle of separation of power between the three arms of government. We also restored the autonomy of the Local Government Administration. However, stringent measures will be taken to cut expenditures by Ministries, Department and Agencies (MDAs).

In summary, the Recurrent expenditure is N 91,377,822,129 . However, this figure includes the repayment to FGN on debts including bailouts funds and rescheduled service of bonds.

Our capital expenditure is N 106,229,450,200 which represents 53.8% of the proposed budget. This is a welcomed development in an era where many other administrations have well below 40% in capital expenditure. It goes without saying that capital expenditure drives development and growth.

The Consolidated Revenue Fund Charges (CRFC) will remain the same with the 2019 budget provision at N 16,303,247,101.

 SUMMARY OF THE 2020 BUDGET

Mr. Speaker, Honorable members, after a painstaking review of impactful variables, a total budget of N 197,607, 272,328 (One Hundred And Ninety- Seven Billion, Six Hundred And Seven Million, Two Hundred And Seventy-Two Thousand , Three Hundred And Twenty-Eight Naira) Is proposed. The budget is appropriately dubbed “Rebuild Imo – Budget One”.
