The Senate, on Tuesday, berated the N8.612 trillion 2018 Budget, saying that it would end up like that of 2017. The Senate said that it was worried that the budget could be poorly implemented. The Senate, while justifying its position, queried some critical projections used in the budget proposals as contained in the 2018 -2020 Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) and Fiscal Strategy Paper( FSP). Specifically, the Red Chambers of the National Assembly, had expressed dismay over the omission by the executive arm on the budget, wherein it made revenue projection similar to the 2017 budget, which it said failed woefully in meeting its projection of N807bn independent revenue out of the N7.444trn it proposed. Theseisues came to the fore when the Senate Committee on Finance, headed by Senator John Enoh ( APC Cross River Central ), held a meeting with government representatives. The anomaly on projections in the proposed budget came when the Minister of State for Budget and National Planning, Mrs. Zainab Ahmed, the Director General of Budget Office, Mr. Ben Akabueze; and other top government officials in the financial sector made presentations on the MTEF document to members of the Senate’s Joint Committee on MTEF and FSP. The minister also hinted that the government may not be able to meet its revenue projections fully in the next fiscal year, because of revenue shortfall since most of the agencies that generate revenue for the government have not been meeting up with what was expected of them. A member of the Senate committee, Senator Ibrahim Danbaba (APC Sokoto South), had faulted the executive arm for making what he described as unrealistic revenue projections in its yearly budget proposals as contained in the MTEF, which was earlier presented to the National Assembly. “For example, on independent revenue projections alone, in 2017, only N155bn have been realised out of the projected N807bn, representing 74% failure; and yet; as stated in the document, the same projection of N807bn is made for independent revenue generation in the 2018 budget estimates aside other unrealistic ones revenue from Value Added Tax, VAT, where the Federal Government had recorded 47% failure in the 2017 budget, etc.
