Presidency revises 2016 budget, reduces allocation for exotic cars by N7billion

PRESIDENT BUHARI PRESENTS 2016 APPROPRATION BILL IN ABUJA

The Presidency has drastically cut its N8.09 billion provision in the 2016 budget for the purchase of various brands of vehicles for State House operations during the year, checks by PREMIUM TIMES have shown.

The President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, had on Thursday accused the presidency of substituting the original copy of the budget presented by President Muhammadu Buhari to the National Assembly on December 22, 2015 with a new version.

Mr Saraki’s claim was the climax of days of suspense following claims and counterclaims that the document was missing.

A review of the fresh copy of the budget uploaded to the website of the Budget Office of the Federation on Friday showed a massive cut by about 83.5 per cent in the total allocation for the vehicles.

The government will now spend only N1.34 billion to buy only five BMW saloon cars and jeeps as well as buses for use by the Presidency during the year.

Apart from the reduction in the provision for vehicles, there were other adjustments in the previous allocations to various departments and units in the Presidency contained in the original budget.

A total of N7.52 billion was provided previously for the purchase of various exotic vehicles, including BMW saloon cars, in addition to another N566 million for the procurement of vehicles, including 16-seater Toyota Hiace coaster buses for the State House.

Despite the adjustments to the allocations to the various departments and units, the total appropriation of N39.13 billion for the Presidency remained unchanged in both the previous and current budget versions.

Details of the different adjustments showed that State House headquarters, which got total allocation of N11.91 billion in the original budget has now been cut by N100 million, same as allocations for its recurrent costs, overheads, honorarium & sitting allowance as well as miscellaneous expenses.

Equally, the purchase of fixed assets, which received N4.57 billion previously, has drastically been reduced to about N1.2 billion, while preservation of the environment and wild life conservation, which got a total of N978.3 million, has now been reduced to N347.4 million.

The Office of the Chief of Staff to the President had its initial allocation of N2.3 million raised to N22.3 million, while allocation to the office of the Chief Security Adviser to the President has also been raised from N3.18 million to N28.18 million.

Details of the provision for the two offices include allocation of N25 million each for overhead costs, recurrent and miscellaneous expenditures. Another N25 million has been budgeted for honorarium & sitting allowance for the office of the Chief of Staff.

The State House Medical Centre has been allocated N100 million for total overheads and recurrent costs.

The State House, Lagos Liaison Office, which had its allocation increased from N126.7 million to N151.7 million, would get in addition N25 million each for recurrent, overhead and miscellaneous costs.

About N2.3 billion provided earlier for the construction and general provision of fixed assets as well as recreational facilities for the State House has now been removed, while rehabilitation and repairs of fixed assets previously allocated N4.48 billion was increased to N13.2 billion.

Rehabilitation/repairs of residential buildings and electricity facilities previously allocated N388 million and N1.7 billion respectively have now been raised to N642.6 million and N1.8 billion respectively.

Another provision of N3.9 billion has been made for the rehabilitation of office building, while renovation of eight blocks of 16 two-bedroom flats at State House Security quarter, Asokoro, would take about N254.6 million.

About N3.9 billion has been set aside for the annual routine maintenance of Villa facilities by Julius Berger, in addition to N764.7million provided for the construction/provision of recreational facilities.

  • Höly Wähala

    Bottom line question remains, what is the total budget figure of the 2016 Budget (As Amended) ?? The old budget was N6.08trn as we remember, by how much is that budget reduced to now reflect the reality of declining earnings from our oil export upon which all these permutations are based… and what’s the “amended breakdown” of attendant borrowings to finance this year’s budget. Lastly, by how much have our greedy legislators reduced our recurrent expenditure which gulps a whopping 70% of each year’s budget? These are the real questions any dilligent analyst wants answers to… Shikena!

    • mukaro

      “Despite the adjustments to the allocations to the various departments and units, the total appropriation of N39.13 billion for the Presidency remained unchanged in both the previous and current budget versions”. In other words, they simply spread the food across different dishes while still retaining the real meat. This is deceptive and ungodly. Besides, the truth that is now clear to Nigerians is that the APC government indeed tried to smuggle a doctored budget into the National Assembly. Too bad!!!! Anti-kworuptian my foot

    Premium times should be clear. The vehicles is for the state house to host foreign delegations and etc. It is not for Buhari personal use.

  • FactsandFigures

    In other words, nothing really changed. Same old “crap”, just different sizes! Prof Osibanjo assured us that this time around they are going to utilize “zero based budgeting” so that any and all “dough” will be effectively accounted for…..I have not seen any evidence of that diligence so far. The budgets needs to be totally overhauled given the ongoing oil crisis. Anything else is mere window dressing.

    *Buhari slashes N16billion Off Lagos-Ibadan Expressway budget,
    But Increased His Feeding Cost From N513M to N1.7Billion.

    Will this mean that the two contractors handling the project, Julius Berger Plc and Reynolds Construction Company (Nigeria) Limited will reduce the quality of Materials they will be using on the road?

    Payments to contractors was stopped immediately President Buhari assumed office and the contractors in turn stopped work on the project and laid off thousands of workers to save cost.

    President Buhari should please remove N1billion from his feeding cost and add it to the completion cost of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to ensure that the quality of the road is not compromised.

Wait a minute, where are they going to get money to finance the budget?

    So what has changed if the total remains the same as reported here? These yoruba e-rats who are killing themselves in blind support of dictator buhari should open their eyes to see that nigeria has just moved from frying pan to fire. Every succeeding government becomes worse than the previous one. In an economic downturn, instead of reducing the expenses in aso rock , they are increasing it more than gej time. The same buhari would be pointing accusing fingers at the NASS when he has not removed the wood in his eyes. By the time buhari finishes we would see gej as Saint. And by the time another person does his own after, we would see buhari as saints. That’s nigeria for you. I weep for this country.

  • Dr Pat Kolawole Awosan

    Every public civil servant working in the national assembly and presidency,Federal and state ministries are eligible for vehicle loans and there are vans provided for national assembly and ministries hence,the cut for exotic cars allocation worth over N8 billion naira is a good correction made by the presidency as oil price now descend to S29 dollars per barrel.Nigeria must cut salaries and allowances of senators and house of representatives as well.

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    Is this why the dictator and his goons organised the breaking,entry,stealing and duplication of the budget ? The whole budget is a fraud because the price of oil is projected at below $20/barrel by modest forecasts. The bench-mark deployed by the dictator’s economic team remains a joke.

  • REDEEM

    President Buhari and his APC cheerleaders have finally succeeded in their efforts to turn Nigeria into a Banana Republic in record time.
    1. Under Buhari’s rule, we have gone from being the largest economy in Africa to being an also poorly ran economy.
    2. Nigeria was once the fastest growing economy in Africa. Just 8 months ago. Nigeria is no longer in the top 10.
    3. The Naira has lost more than 40% of its value in the 8 months that Buhari has ruled Nigeria. 40%!!!
    4. President Buhari himself announced that he would not respect court judgements that goes against his beliefs. We are officially lawless.
    5. President Jonathan set up a public healthcare architecture that turned Ebola into the epidemic that never happened in Nigeria, of course with the heroic efforts of the late Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh and her colleagues, and we lost only 3 Nigerians to Ebola. Lassa Fever has killed over 40 Nigerians so far documented within the last 2 weeks, and Buhari’s government has not made any significant effort to tackle this deadly epidemic.
    6. For the first time in the history of Nigeria, and perhaps the world, the National Assembly has been presented with two ridiculous budgets, both emanating from the Presidency, and neither of which has been denied, this after the disgraceful drama of the missing budget.
    7. Buhari appointed his relations as Chairman of INEC, and the result has been their disgraceful conduct of elections in Kogi and Bayelsa states, and the entrance into common Nigerian lexicon of the word “inconclusive”.
    8. Buhari’s record on security, despite his pedigree as a retired General, has been abysmal, to be frank. The Chibok girls have not been found, and Buhari has absolved himself of responsibility by telling their parents that their abduction did not happen on his watch.
    One abduction that did happen on his watch, the kidnapping of 170 girls from the village of Bam, has enjoyed a conspiracy of silence by both the local and the international media and Buhari’s government
    9. Tie all these in with the unbelievable actions of some of Buhari’s ministers and appointees, and you get a sinking feeling in your stomach.
    Nigeria is officially a Banana Republic, run on rumour, innuendo and the whims and caprices of its aged Emperor and his powerful minions.
    May God save Nigerians.

  • Abidilagungun

      “Shocking details emerged from the recently presented 2016 budget that the executive arm of government
      will spend the lion share of N5.87 trillion or about 96.5 per cent of the total N6.1 trillion. Then, about N205
      billion (or 3.5 per cent) goes to the other arms of government. The Legislature and the Judiciary will get N115
      billion and N90 billion respectively, Vanguard revealed. The breakdown of the budget also indicates that the
      federal government intends to spend N39 billion in running the Office of the President with major allocations
      going to car purchase at N3.9 billion; and, another N189 million to change tyres for specified vehicles
      in the Presidency.”

        • favourtalk

          If not GEJ, we won’t even be in this mess in the first place.

  • In my opinion, this looks disappointing as it reflects in no way the reality common Nigerians experience daily. Billions to be spent on renovation. No reduction in what’s allocated to the presidency, only changes in figures in different places, with additions and subtractions here and there. Add to this the falling oil price and the prospect of further fall, and one is tempted to regret ever drumming support for this government.
    I truly hope, for the benefit of us all, that the President and his team know what they’re doing. I mean, it’ll be really regrettable and unfortunate if these people we’ve so trusted to be the change we need, now turn around and take us for a ride.
    I hope it’s not as bad as it appears. Since I don’t have all the facts, I withhold conclusion for when I do. It doesn’t look promising though.

    • ConScience

      Very well said as we will not follow blindly. Our loyalty is to the Nigerian populace and not the political elite or otherwise. I do trust Buhari’s intentions but we reserve the right to question certain motives and if Nigerians are told to tighten their belts (due to falling revenues and a potential Global recession) then we expect the FG who function at the expense and pleasure of the taxpayers to also adhere to same.

    Buhari Will Not Congratulate Dickson – Lai Mohammed.

    If Seriake Dickson the Governor of Bayelsa State is expecting a congratulatory message from President Muhammadu Buhari over his recent re-election for a second term of office, he had better forget it.
    Lai Mohammed, Nigeria’s minister of information and culture told journalists in Abuja on Monday that the President would not follow the habit of his predecessor who was of the habit of sending congratulatory messages to winners of elections regardless of party affiliation immediately after announcement of results.

    Governor Dickson of Peoples Democratic Party was recently re-elected for a second term in an election that was marred by violence. He defeated Timipre Slyva of All Progressives Congress, APC, the party of President Buhari.

    There have been calls, especially from Senator Ben Bruce, a Bayelsa State PDP Senator and other members of the party that President Buhari should toe the path of former president, Goodluck Jonathan who issued statements to congratulate members of the opposition party who won governorship election during his tenure.

    But Mohammed told journalists that President Buhari sees such congratulatory messages as unnecessary interference in elections or their outcomes which he will not engage in.
    “This President is not in the business of interfering and intervening in elections,” the Minister said.
    He also noted that the President never sent any congratulatory message to the APC candidate who was also victorious in Kogi State gubernatorial election….

    NOW, I SUPPORT A COUP:

    So, OBJ too can be gagged, where is Wole Soyinka, Tam David West, Pastor Bakare, Adeboye, Revn Okonkwo, Tinubu, where are the Southern leaders, some of the Yorubas that brought us to this point?

    Why have they left when the ovation is loudest and left the fight for the younger generation?

    I believe this is what they are thinking, okay, we have finished the country and sold our conscience, we would soon depart and allow the younger ones to stew in their mess.

    Posterity can never be kind nor have a good word to say about you lot. History would hold all of you accountable.

    You all foisted a tyrant on us now, you too have gone deaf and dumb, this deafness and dumbness is not from senility but from fear of what the tyrant would do to shut them up.

    As in seriously Buhari can order for people to be picked and kept in prison at his leisure without any charge and we are looking on helplessly and some are clapping, hailing him still as the saviour and no one has the temerity nor can stand up to ask him why?

    Really disheartening.

    ‪#‎Sobbing‬.

    Intimidation, subjugation, harassment of perceived enemies is rife and has taken over our young democracy and destroyed all the institutions that were built.
    How did we get here? Why did we allow this?

    ‪#‎TyrantBuhariMustBeStopped‬. Before he stops us.

    I am a Niger Deltan and I ‪#‎StandWithNigerDelta‬.

    I can’t stop agitating.

    President Buhari Has No Capacity To Rule Nigeria. – Bloomberg UK.

    **Nigeria dangerous sliding, investments in all-time low, stock market rated world 3rd-worst & growth slow to 16-year.

    International financial and business news giant, Bloomberg, has expressed serious doubts on the ability of President Muhammad Buhari of Nigeria to turn around Africa’s largest economy and oil producer.

    In a scathing analysis of the over six months of Buhari in office, the news outlet concluded that the country was on a dangerous slide with investments at an all-time low, the stock market rated as the third-worst performing globally within the period, and growth projected to slow to a 16-year low of 3.3 percent.

    In an article, Buhari Bounce Becomes Bust As Nigeria Policies Annoy Investors, the group noted that stocks that soared as investors looked to the former military ruler to reverse decades of economic mismanagement and policy inertia, have all nosed dived and “Now hopes have fizzled in his ability to turn around Africa’s largest economy and oil producer.

    “Money that flowed into stocks and bonds in the West African nation, which McKinsey & Co. says could become one of the world’s 20 biggest economies by 2030, is now fleeing as growth prospects diminish along with oil prices. While Buhari, 72, has prioritized stamping out the graft that has plagued Nigeria since independence from Britain in 1960, policy-making appears as uncertain and haphazard as ever.”
    Quoting Ayodele Salami, who oversees about $500 million of African equities as chief investment officer of London-based Duet Asset Management Ltd., he said the initial euphoria has turned to disillusionment.

    Me thinks PMB has good plans for the country. He still has my support. But next time sha, he should not withdraw the budget through the window before telling us.
