FILE PHOTO: Former Finance minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala laying the budget before National Assembly Lawmakers

    Nigerians will never allow this people to go Scott free when the time of judgment comes after may 29 becaue they have stolen enough from this country and change is what we need right now, we can’t continue like this again, we need a better nation and a transformed country

  • Afuye Olawale

    Total personel cost for presidency is 12 Billions

  • sirbrwnjr

    It is absolutely a disgrace that Okonjo Iweala is presenting this evil budget in a country full of poor people. Diaris God ho!

  • Amir

    This is why they were ashamed to publish this worthless word document template called budget. We elected a president to feast on our resources and claim saTANic transformation with less than 15% capital votes.

  • Bunduma Mohammed

    Ngozi Iweala the unconfess member othe economic hitman sent to dtroy Nigeria

    • Walter

      Hmmmm. You could be right.

  • Eze1

    God Bless you guys at PT. The next document is the so-called NNPC Audit Report, please scoop this for your followers. Thank you

  • Arabakpura

    It is finished!

  • Olalere Yusuf

    Yet to read but can guess is going to be self-serving like previous ones of GEJ government.

  • burning spear

    A very petty and petulant personality he would sooner employ the coercive instruments of state in the service of settling personal scores. Upon assumption of power as military head of state, Buhari caused the duo of Haroun Adamu and Babatope to be imprisoned for no offence other than writing critical columns on him as a politically ambitious Army officer.

    I anticipate and accept as germane the critical observation that this column has uniquely focussed on Buhari to the exclusion of his rival contender for the high office of the presidency of Nigeria. As I have often reiterated on this page I am deliberately partisan-to give balance to the hypocritical near one sided narrative in the media today.

    More importantly, majority of the Nigerian electorate were born after Buhari had left office as maximum ruler and may therefore be unfamiliar with his record in office, including his stint at the PTF-except as filtered by the overwhelmingly dominant propaganda machinery of his political platform and associates. If the tone of my presentation has been harsh it is in response to his insufferably arrogant posturing and habitual ridiculing of the incumbent president-his interlocutors are no less guilty.

    Above all, I hold him responsible, more than any Nigerian politician, for the bitter and bellicose accentuation of the religious and ethno-regional cleavages that increasingly threaten the survival of Nigeria as a united political entity. And by the way-in how many sane societies do you witness the tyrannical eccentricities of jailing people for 300, 500, 650 years?–WHAT A SHAME

    • Socrates

      Please back up your statement with facts, i’m tired of these baseless “copy-paste” propaganda. Any right thinking person knows that GEJ’s administration is the worst thing that ever happened to this country. This regime is solely intrested in self-perpetuation, they don’t give a damn about the masses. Under GEJ,corruption has taken a whole new dimension. It is blatant, outright and in-your face. Billions of dollars reported missing, budget running on a deficit inspite of record oil prices during the past 5 years.

      In short thousands have been murdered and millions have become destitute, fleeing from one hell-hole to the other, forced to be refugees in their own land. Meanwhile GEJ and his goons are busy pillaging the nations coffers, trying to out-steal one another! GEJ must Go period!

    HOW CAN THE BUDGET BE SAID TO BE SECRET WHEN THERE ARE MEMBERS OF APC IN THE HOUSE———–ARE FGN BUDGETS READ BY ONLY MEMBERS OF PDP?—-WHEN WOULD THE MEDIA UNDER JONATHAN STOP THIS RUBBISH? WHEN–THIS IS AN INSULT TO THE SENSIBILITIES OF NIGERIANS———————–

  • Es3

    Premium Times,

    A document that was submitted in documentary details (with summary presented to a joint session of both houses) to the National Assembly with each Rep and Senator given a copy to study, Is that the same document that Jonathan’s government does not want Nigerians to see???????!!!

    It’s appalling every other time your paper allows APC’s propaganda money to dislocate you brains!!!

    • burning spear

      ITS REALLY SAD THAT A MEDIA HOUSE WITH EDUCATED EDITORS WILL PUBLISH THIS RUBBISH–ITS SAD VERY SAD INDEED–I AM REALLY ASHAMED OF THE TYPE OF EDITORS WE NOW HAVE IN NIGERIA—–WHAT THIS ENTAILS IS THAT——THE HOUSE AND SENATE ARE MADE UP OF ONLY PDP MEME AND WOMEN—THEN WHEN U RESPOND–THEY DELETE YR COMMENTS–ANAIMAL

    • UNAFFECTED

      I assume that you do not know much about budgeting and just commenting in defence of the GEJ brand. What PT just published is the budget details. What the government made public was the summary. I advise that you take your time and go through each item and you will see what the government is doing that makes it had for us to move forward. Just read it.

      • Es3

        Your assumption is wrong?!!! But that is for another day!

        I would ask you to tell Nigerians if the copies that were delivered to the two chambers of the national assembly for consideration and approval were summaries as well???!

        If no, then it means the detailed estimates were in the public domain since then???! As a matter of fact, I got mine through that channel despite not being or doing anything with the national assembly?!!!

        Now tell me, if not for mischief, why would Premium Times call the budget something that Jonathan’s government does not want Nigerians to see???!!!

    WHAT PREMIUM TIMES DOES NOT WANT NIGERIANS TO KNOW
    ==================================================

    ——@ NIGER REPUBLIC——-
    Thousands of people have marched in Niger’s capital to protest against Boko Haram, which has launched deadly raids into the country from Nigeria….The demonstrators were led by Niger’s Prime Minister Brigi Rafini and protected by a heavy police presence.

    Demonstrators in Niamey told the BBC, “What worries us most is that they are killing our brothers, our sisters, our parents and friends,” said one. “That’s why we support our military 100% to fight them, to kill them.


    ——@ NIGERIA ———

    The opposition party organizes protests against the President accusing him of incompetence when ever Boko haram kills or bombs a location. The military is lambasted for not performing even though sympathizers exist within the military to sabotage any fight against the terrorists.

    Furthermore, the presidential candidate of the opposition says the Govt should grant amnesty to terrorists by treating them the same way Niger Delta revolutionary resource control fighters are treated. He further goes to say that he will eliminate Boko haram in 3 weeks if he is voted president. So, till that time, that will sure never come, Nigerians can continue to die.

    • burning spear

      HAND UP FOR U—–IMAGINE THEM SAYING THE FGN IS HIDING THE NATIONAL BUDGET—WHAT AN INSULT—IS THE HOUSE MADE UP OF ONLY PDP MEMBERS—

    • Walter

      Ok, let the president also stage his own rally. Question is, he will be gutted first thing because if his government is good, he has nothing to fear.

  • PhD-Port harcourt Diploma

    Wonder shall never end in this land. What capital project is the Secretary to the Government of the Federation embarking on that the office got 5 billion naira as capital vote? Again the same office got 5.7 billion naira as overhead cost, but I think this office is under presidency, is the cost charged here not going to be repeated under presidency budget? The office of SGF alone got 52.8 billion naira in total! I dont think the combine first generation universities in Nigeria-UI, UNN, Unilag, OAU and ABU will get as much as this, the critical sector. The most irritating part of the budget is the budget to the office of Head of Service of the Federation with a total of 7.3 billion naira. The office got a budget of 1.9 billion naira for overhead cost, I think this office was built by FGN, so how much do you pay in rent, electricity, telephone and so on…….habaaaaaaaaaa! Again, the same office got 600 million as vote for capital project! How much is paid to Federall Poly Ede as subvention in a year? I can now understand why Dasuki went on air to postpone election, he has a vote of 84 billion naira to play around with under the GEJ, gbege!!! The breakdown of the office budget is as follows: 51.7 billion naira as personnel cost, 12.4 billion naira as overhead despite being under presidency and a whopping 20 billion naira as capital vote. Is the NSA fighting Bokoharam war separately that his office needs 20 billion naira to buy war equipment? What about the military budget? This money you are sharing, there there there is is is God OOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

    • UNAFFECTED

      Meanwhile, 83.1 billion is voted for special duties under the office of the SGF. The major problem of the budgetary process is the abuse of the line items where expenditures are based on historical needs. Here are the disadvantages and why the government continues to run an recurrent expenditure budget. These line-item budgeting create only a superficial analysis of expenditures. The National Assembly is simply accepting the status quo, using the thought process that since this budgeting method was used in previous fiscal years, it should continue to be used for the coming year. Read the budget and you will see line items like travel and transport with a sub-line called local training and then down the line will be another line item called local training. Each has its own allocation in billions. This is why MDAs bribe the lawmakers to eliminate every opportunity to take an in-depth look at each line item to determine if the proposed expenditure is truly necessary or if funds could be allocated more efficiently.

  • burning spear

    SADLY FOR US THIS PARTICULAR ARTICLE IS A NATIONAL DISGRACE–A SHAME TO JOURNALISM————————AND AN INSULT TO THE SENSIBILITIES OF NIGERIANS———————-THAT GOVERNMENT IS NOW HIDING THE NATIONAL BUDGET——–WHERE ARE THE APC THUGS IN THE SENATE AND HOUSE

  • thusspokez

    This type of journalism is shameful and ignorant. Why can’t Nigerians follow
    conventions and do things in the proper way? Premium Times is besmirching
    the image of the Nigerian government and by extension, Nigeria — giving the
    false impression that Nigerians don’t have much rights.

    Summaries of the budget, leaving out the tedious technical stuff, have been
    available on the internet since December 2014. Even the experts would find
    it difficult to read the whole document and yet this is what Premium Times
    wants its readers to do; and making big deal out of it?

    But why can’t Nigerians ever do things properly? If Premium Times
    ask the Nigerian government and it refuses to make it available, then the
    Nigerian “Freedom of Information (FofI) Act” gives Nigerians, rights of access
    to such records. Either Premium Times is not aware of the existence of such
    a law or it thinks it is better to steal it with the help of BudgIT.

    It really baffles me when people openly display their
    ignorance publicly. I accept that in the past the government has kept every
    information about budget and budgeting under locks and keys, but thanks to the
    present administration, we now do clause by clause analyses of the Appropriation
    Act. I am particularly not impressed with reportage of Premium Times and Sahara
    Reporters who have not chosen objectivity and professionalism in their coverage
    of Nigerian issues.

  • Comfort

    People should learn to know that gone are those days where
    people go to the sea to dig deep for Nigerian budgets. The Premium Times need
    not go as far as recruiting a guerrilla and generally hungry BugIT to do its
    job for it. Thumbs down for Premium Times.

  • burning spear

    COMPLETE MADNESS

  • Ebube

    I have issues with professionals behaving like politicians just the way sahara reproters and the Premium Times. People should learn to know that gone are those days where
    people go to the sea to dig deep for Nigerian budgets. The Premium Times need
    not go as far as recruiting a guerrilla and generally hungry BugIT to do its
    job for it. Thumbs down for Premium Times. I am not impressed with their reportage at all!

    • Socrates

      Abeg, spare me the BS. Information on budget has Always been free and accessibl looong Before the so called F.O.I bill. The whole thing is hypocritical. Is it not the same government that has banned OBJ’s book from being published in Nigeria. Where is the freedom of information there?

  • Guguru

    Premium Times, well done. This is exactly what investigative journalism is all about. I commend you all for ensuring that transparency remains the cornerstone of Nigerian democracy. Let all those who want to commit suicide because you did the right thing, do so. In fact, show them the closest transformer they can hug with wet t-shirts. Well done PT.

  • Tatafo

    Somebody calls this investigative journalism, na wa o. A document is given to senators and representatives, and often journalists get it, and Premium Times is celebrating it as a scoop! What a scoop indeed! If your colleagues in the National Assembly are lazy, like the lawmakers who should publicise the documents for their constituents, it does not mean you were ingenious, so don’t take credit for what a rookie reporter could have done.

  • Uzoma John

    The budget of the Presidency did not indicate how much is earmarked for The Presidential Fleet’s (about 10 airplanes) maintenance, fueling, landing charges in foreign lands, etc. If it is costing =N=21.6million and =N=46.2million for fueling and maintenance of cars respectively, it is also proper to let Nigerians know how much it will cost to fuel, maintain and fly 10 different Presidential jets ( where the cost of maintaining and flying one plane is more than what is budgeted for the entire vehicle in the Presidential Fleet). From all indication, the =N=10.7million budgeted for International travel and transport is for commercial airline fares and hotel accommodation outside Nigeria, not maintaining and flying the airplanes in the Presidential fleet. Why the omission from the Budget. Can someone explain please, possibly the GEJ cum PDP e-rats? We are analyzing the Budget of the Presidency based on available figures, not here say or cooked up stories. Oya, over to you e-rats.

    • Uzoma John

      ADDENDUM. Infact, I even understated the figures. The figures above was just part of it. The actual State House Headquarters (direct President’s expenses) is far more than I thought. Fueling of cars will cost =N=85.8million, while vehicle maintenance will cost =N=149million. There was no mention of how much the 10 planes will cost to maintain and fly them.

    • Azu

      John:
      I suspect that you will find the information that you seek under the the Ministry of Defense budget, specifically, the airforce. Since it is the air force that operates the air crafts.

      • Uzoma John

        Please don’t twist facts. The Presidential fleet has never been part of Ministry of Defence budget. If you have it kindly attach the link here to prove me wrong. I don’t believe in heresay.

  • Easy

    Na wah o, 150 BILLION naira for 109 senators and 360 reps??? that is N319,829,424 per individual???? And yet the citizens of the country that elected the reps/senators are wallowing in poverty???

    Na wah o!!!!!

  • Bilquis

    Nigerians have not learnt to appreciate the freedom of
    information Act signed by this administration. The fact that the budget can
    even be sighted by the press is something that should be appreciated and
    commended by lovers of Nigeria. This is also why we must give kudos to the
    economic management team as led by the Minister for Finance, Mrs Ngozi
    Okonjo-Iweala.This we must all know

  • Yaqub

    My take on the Premium Times article on the Budget is that
    the news media does not bother to tell Nigerians when last before Jonathan
    administration anyone has discussed the Budget. Before now all Nigerians will
    know is just that the Budget has been passed and no questions allowed. Nigerians
    were treated like common school children who only know but cannot talk. The fact
    that we are seeing and talking now shows that the present regime must be commended.
    Journalism should be about seeing,
    saying, investigating and reporting the truth not outright falsehoods like this
    one.

  • Al Bahir

    We must not allow sentiments to becloud our sense of
    judgement. What is in the Budget that Nigerians will not be allowed to see? This
    is just like the case of the NNPC report which the Premium Times and the APC
    hardliners said the Minister for Finance is hoarding. The report is out now we
    haven’t heard them shout about it anymore. We must learn to be civil even in
    playing partisan politics in this country. We should equally give credits as at
    when due to those that are at the helms of affairs in this country. This is why
    I am joining other responsible and patriotic Nigerians to give credit to Madam
    Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala for prudent management of the country’s resources.
