How Jonathan administration Plunged Nigeria Into Recession – Fashola

Nigeria’s Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, on Friday gave insight into how Nigeria slipped into recession.

Mr. Fashola, who spoke at the Lafarge Road Construction Summit in Lagos, said recession didn’t happen overnight and attributed the development to poor budgetary funding by the administration of former president, Goodluck Jonathan.

“There have been various comments about who and what caused the recession, I think that Nigerians know the answer to that, no matter how vehemently that debate goes on,” Mr. Fashola said.

“All I need to say at this time is that if the previous managers of the economy were doing well, the Nigerian electorate would not have relieved them of their jobs in the last general election because a recession does not happen overnight.

“There have also been questions about what the exit of the recession means to the ordinary Nigerian and this for me is the important question; because, even when the economy was growing at 5%-7%, the complaint was that it was a non-inclusive growth.

“Growth was largely oil driven, and sectors like industries, mining and construction had been in the negative since 2014.”

Mr. Fashola said many reasons had been given for the negative trend in the mining and construction sectors, adding that a core reason was the fact that public spending up to 2015 was largely recurrent and minimally capital.

“Government was budgeting about 15% of an annual budget of N4 Trillion for capital, which is only about N600 billion, and was funding barely half of that,” he said.

“If an example is required, it will be found in the 2015 budget, which was the last budget of the previous managers of the economy, where N18 billion was budgeted for all of Nigeria’s roads, N5 billion was budgeted for Power and N1.8 billion was budgeted for Housing.

“As if these were not bad enough (but) barely half of these budget provisions were funded.

“The result therefore was that massive debts were owed to contractors who started laying off workers and closing down worksites, and not driving demand for labour, aggregates, lubricants, etc.

“The 2016 budget of the Buhari government changed that,” the former Lagos governor said.

Mr. Fashola explained that in the Ministry of Power, Works and Housing, a total of N422.9 billion was budgeted, and disaggregated with Works getting N260.082 billion while Power got N91.257 billion, and Housing was allocated N71.559 billion.

“The total sum of N269.271 billion was paid out to fund this budget and in the final analysis N1.2 trillion was spent on capital expenditure across all ministries, departments and agencies in the 2016 budget.

“Out of these N198.300 billion was spent in the works sector on roads and bridges. This is what induced the recovery of growth and the exit from recession.

“It is the exact opposite of what the previous managers of the economy had been doing,” he explained.

In early September, Nigeria broke the cycle of negative GDP growth that characterized a period of recession, and recorded a 0.55% growth that takes her out of recession.

On Friday, the National Bureau of Statistics, NBS, announced that the nation’s inflation rate dropped again for the seventh consecutive month.

Nigeria slipped into recession in the early part of 2016.

Commenting further, Mr. Fashola revealed that the Dangote group had decided to extend the construction of Apapa-Wharf road.

Mr. Fashola said: “You’ll recall that we had an agreement with the Dangote group to rehabilitate and reconstruct the Apapa Wharf road using cement.

“They have since come back to say ‘we want to take the entire road network from Apapa, Liverpool, all through to Marine beach to Mile 2 to Oshodi to Oworonshoki and to the Toll Gate, a stretch of 35km so that we develop one solution to the port evacuation problem’.

“We held a meeting on Tuesday, we have agreed that this is the route they will take and they have written back to confirm their commitment and what is left is for the design consultant to complete the design so that we then use that to determine the cost and we use this solution to solve that road network using concrete.”

The Nigerian government had, in June, signed a N4.34 billion memorandum of understanding with Dangote Construction Company Ltd and other stakeholders for the construction of the road.

    If it hadn’t been for Eywa (the Buhari administration), the Sky People (Jonathan and his 40 thieves),the people of Pandora (ordinary Nigerians), would’ve been decimated.

      Vote for the right people, enough of stomach infrastructure vote. Don’t collect money to chose your leaders. Elections are near, endure the hardship now and use your cards wisely to avoid lamentations. Electoral corruption is deadlier than stealing money. Be wise.

  • Allwell

    Continue the good work Mr Fashola. At least we are feeling the impact in the power sector with over 7thousand megawatts. God be with you and the entire Buhari administration.

  • Rommel

    Our country will rise no matter what detractors say or do.We are witnesses to what our Harvard trained world bank economist coordinating minister for economy did to that our dear Nigeria, I have said it million times that Kemi Adeosun may not carry same resumen as NOI but she is miles ahead of her in managing Nigeria’s economy, I have confidence in her. More grease to the elbows of this administration.

      Kemi is way better than Ngozi.

        we know who we voted for. our votes counted!

    Let’s hope that the next government will not be saying how Buhari’s administration plunged Nigeria into fragmentation. Jonathan’s administration’s lowest points far outweighs Buhari’s highest. And that’s a simple fact.
    The learned honorable minister is either claiming that Jonathan caused the fall in oil price or that the growths in the non oil sectors witnessed under the former president were mere fards. It’s true that many Nigerians are underinformed due to acute limitation or lack of information and knowledge infrastructure as a result of exploitation by their leaders. But that condition must not be perpetuated or exploited just so incessantly for mere political or personal gains.

    • Peter_Edo

      too bad you cant think…

      If an example is required, it will be found in the 2015 budget,
      which was the last budget of the previous managers of the economy, where
      N18 billion was budgeted for all of Nigeria’s roads, N5 billion was
      budgeted for Power and N1.8 billion was budgeted for Housing.

      “As if these were not bad enough (but) barely half of these budget provisions were funded.

      “The result therefore was that massive debts were owed to contractors
      who started laying off workers and closing down worksites, and not
      driving demand for labour, aggregates, lubricants, etc.

      “The 2016 budget of the Buhari government changed that,” the former Lagos governor said.

      Mr. Fashola explained that in the Ministry of Power, Works and
      Housing, a total of N422.9 billion was budgeted, and disaggregated with
      Works getting N260.082 billion while Power got N91.257 billion, and
      Housing was allocated N71.559 billion.

      read the highlights…so you can argue with sense… now imagine as you say that the price of oil dropped and affected this admin, but the admin was still able to shore up resources using meager returns from as you said, lower oil prices and work.

      • King Bibinama

        Of course if you could think and express yourself you’d not just copy and paste half of the report for a comment. How then could you ever properly respond to an objective thought on the subject matter? Sorry.

        • Powerlessconscious

          PDP education is a sin. It has destroyed the thinking faculty of lot of Nigerians.

    Soludo: Buhari met bad economy but made it worse!! ON MAY 13, 201710:54

    Former Central Bank Governor and professor of Economics, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo has said that President Muhammedu Buhari inherited a bad economy from the previous Goodluck Jonathan’s administration on 29th May 2015 and made it worse. He made this known to newsmen at ‘Big Ideas Podium’, a public policy debate organised by the Afri Heritage Institution in Enugu. According to him via ‘the cable’;

    “Buhari met a very bad situation when he assumed power, but he has made the situation worse. Nigeria today is a fragile state with a failing economy. Some say failing state; some say failed state”. “The economy is not just in recession; we are suffering from massive economic compression. Saying it is recession trivializes the issue.
    “It will be a miracle if after eight years, by the time it leaves office in 2023, the current administration is able to return the economy in dollar terms to the exchange rate it met when it took over”
    The truth is this government inherited a very bad situation, but it has made it VERY MUCH WORSE.”

    • Otile

      Besides, Buhari has saddled Nigeria with unnecessary debt which he wants the future generation to pay. Anybody who supports this kind of change is as dumb as Buhari.

      • Mizch

        Gham!!!

  • Kareem

    The Director General, West African Institute for Financial and Economic Management, Prof. Akpan Ekpo, who noted that the government could not fix the country in one year, said, “What I will call a mistake is the delay in taking action; we call it lag structure in economics.

    “For example, there was an unnecessary delay in passing the budget. There was an unnecessary delay in forming a cabinet. Those two major delays have been creating problem for the country.

    “In February, some of us warned that we were on a tip of a recession with rising unemployment, rising inflation and declining productivity.

    “If at that point, they had implemented the budget and released money – because you must spend out of a recession – we would have avoided the recession. A budget of 2016 was passed on May 6; even as we speak, we don’t know how far they have gone with the implementation.”

    He also said there was a delay in fiscal policy.

    “For a long time, monetary policy was the only thing people were talking about because we didn’t see any fiscal policy. When it started coming out, it was late.

  • Kareem

    A former Minister of Solid Minerals, Mrs. Obi Ezekwesili, has said the administrations of former President Goodluck Jonathan and that of the incumbent, Muhammadu Buhari, led the nation’s economy into recession by failing to adopt the right policies to deal with the crash in crude oil prices, which began in mid-2014.
    According to her, the economic policies of the present administration have worsened the matter, because they are not the right policies.
    She said, “The parlous state of the Nigerian economy by the 29th of May, 2015 should have instructed an incisive and urgent macroeconomic stabilisation programme to realign the price levels in the economy. By May 2015, we knew we were already in trouble. As a matter of fact, we were already in trouble in 2014. That was the first time that growth collapsed to 3.8 per cent. The incoming administration should not have been told that we were weak and vulnerable.
    She stated, “The attendant fiscal pressure and the delayed right policy responses were severe enough that by 2015, economic growth had sharply declined from 3.8 to 2.7 per cent. And then began the sharper loss of growth into negative growth rate by 2016. It was a major mistake that the economy did not get timely and right type of policies that could have helped us avoid the calamitous collapse into negative growth in the last three quarters of 2016.
    She said, “The record of the government today for timely and right actions on the economy is, however, so far not encouraging at all. For almost one year, the government delayed prime action on the fuel subsidy regime despite its aggravating import on fiscal imbalance.

    “Over the same period, it delayed the right action on the exchange rate policy despite the deleterious effects that it was having on foreign reserves, the value of the naira, as well as on inflation. Before the government came on board, inflation level was nine per cent; today, inflation has doubled to more than 18 per cent. The greatest enemy of the poor is inflation. The greatest enemy of business is inflation. All you need in order to destroy the poor is total unstable price levels in an economy”

      She was looking for job in Buhari administration when she said it. Ask her now and see what she tells you.

  • Dead End.

    If not for religious and tribal sentiments; Why can’t these nobleman be Nigerian President?
    Because we’re not ready for genuine development…He is nothing but a bunch of knowledge, and genuine administrator. When intellectual speaks you know. Fakaati…..

    • Otile

      Do you say that when Fashola speaks from the hip you know?

  • Ken

    Fashola is drunk, he doesn’t know what he is saying. Buhari actually plunged the nation into the stagflationary recession. No matter how hard the govt explains.

    @disqus_6fzljRWUvT:disqus

    RAJI FASHOLA was failing and repeating class in school, according to his other mates
    who said they left him behind. I can now see why. It takes a complete dunce to say to
    the general public that the last budget of ₦198 billion he said he spent on roads last
    year was what took Nigeria as a country out of four (4) consecutive quarters of
    economic recession that was caused by Buhari’s mindless 62% devaluation of
    the Naira + Buhari’s coupling mad policy of 64% hike in petrol pump price.
    Where in economics have roads and bridges ever caused any country’s
    exit from economic recession? What illiterate is this Raji Fashola?

        He should name the roads.

    • share Idea

      Please pardon the gullible that he kept deceiving. The other time he claimed that FEC approved Manbilla hydro (for over $3B) after 45 years of previous administration even when a single google search will reveal that previous administration of GEJ approved same for less than $3B without him educating us on why the contract needed rewarding.

      APC government is full of liers, I give it to them that they are first among equals in lying and propaganda

  • ukoette ibekwe

    This man knows nothing about economics, especially that of a subsistence economy such as Nigeria’s. I didn’t care to read the nonsense he may have said because he is always talking like an illiterate. He is an example of many certificate illiterates that Nigeria continues to produce. I heard he is a SAN.

      This is not about “blaming”, it is reality.

      The impact of the damage the bast*rds did would still be around for the next 30 years.

      The Tories have formed 3 governments since Labour lost under Gordon Brown almost ten years ago and are still blaming the last labour government.

      Today cannot be separated from yesterday because it is from the womb of yesterday that today was born.

        We were ashamed of the irresponsibility of the previous govt that is why we voted them out, why is this govt still telling us about the previous govt when it should be rolling up its sleeves and getting down to work, it has been 2yrs since APC came to power and we still don’t know where they are headed in terms of economic policy and i find it amusing that educated people like you are so quick to make excuses for them while the country continues in a downward spiral

        • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

          If you can’t see the efforts at diversifying the economy and the dividends being yielded presently, then I am afraid to tell you that your education needs to go beyond the classroom walls.

          Some of us are more discerning and appreciate trends earlier than the mundane folks littering our political and public discourse.

          You may see a country on the “downward spiral”, but I see public looting and brazen thefts on a downward spiral.

          If these are the things that gives rise to your false conclusions, then I can’t help you.

          • Durotimi Oye

            My dear brother what are the efforts being made to diversify the economy and please don’t mention agriculture because price of foodstuffs has been increasing since this govt came in. You mentioned recovered funds, we are just told they found money in water tanks,sewers and abandoned building but no owners, your DG of NIA who 48m dollars was found in his house was only suspended from office he is still walking free, $48m! and you say you are fighting corruption, people like you are too happy for politicians to sing a tune and you happily chorus the rest for them. Education is useless if you cannot apply it to think on your own, I am educated and i can think on my own, you claim to be educated but you cannot think on your own you wait for the tune from politicians and then start singing.

  • durotimi oye

    The DG of NIA was caught with 48 million dollars and the Buhari govt only suspended him from office and the case has now died down, your reaction to that is it was jonathan that appointed him, are you well at all? I said this govt only recovers money but no arrests are made, your response is that they just can’t touch recovered money, once again I ask you are you are well at all?I am referring to arrests not spending recovered money. We hear so much about billions being recovered but little or no arrests are made. Price of foodstuffs going down?now I know you are on the payroll of lai mohammed so I am not going to respond to you anymore and I have also come to the conclusion that you might have a BSC or BA but you are seriously intellectually handicapped. The 5k you receive for posting all this rubbish online to deceive people will cause you 5 million naira worth of pain in future. If you want to respond again please do so like someone that went to school not like some shoemaker at oshodi bus stop discussing politics with a bus conductor.

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      To a carpenter with a hammer, everything must surely look like wood and nails.

      I don’t blame you. Rather, I blame a defective educational system that bred mongrels in the name of graduates.

      If you’d left primary school when this government came to power and started reading newspapers then, you wouldn’t be talking about “arrests” like a baboon whose nuts have been caught in a mouse trap.

      Like I stated elsewhere to you, brains are free, please go and get some.
