NAIJA NEWSPAPERS: TODAY'S THE GUARDIAN NEWSPAPER HEADLINES [26 NOVEMBER, 2017].


Below are the headlines found on The Guardian Online Newspaper for today, Sunday, 26 November, 2017.

Strong indications emerged at the weekend that the country may be heading for another season of budget showdown, as the executive and the legislative arms seem to be holding divergent views on the plan to reset the budgetary cycle back to the traditional January to December.

President Muhammadu Buhari, on November 7, tabled the N8.6 trillion 2018 spending plan before the National Assembly.

Up till this moment, no serious legislative action has been taken by the National Assembly, even though it is barely three weeks to the end of year break. The implication is that the budget re-setting plan billed to come into effect on January 1, 2018 may still remain elusive.


In fact, the Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) and the Fiscal Strategy Paper  – the baseline and guide for which the budget is anchored is yet to be approved by the legislature, which has not hidden its desire to “frustrate” the budget reset plan on the suspicion that the executive is trying to stampede it into rushing to approve the proposal without due process.

Speaking on the theme: “The Role of Nigerian Banking Sector: Opportunities, Challenges and the Way forward, “Fakeye said: “It is impossible that we are going to pass the 2018 Budget in December. Remember, the budget or Appropriation Bill is just like every other bill and there is a procedure that a bill goes through before its passage. We are not going to circumvent the process. I think the executive arm needs to put its house in order. If they wanted early passage of the budget, they ought to have brought it or time.
