President Buhari Presents N16.39trn 2022 Budget To National Assembly

Before a joint session of the national assembly on Thursday, October 7, President Muhammadu Buhari presented an appropriation bill of N16.39 trillion as the total expenditure of the federal government in 2022.

The appropriation bill christened ‘Budget of Economic Growth and Sustainability’ was laid before the joint session of the national assembly.

A breakdown of the budget shows that N768.28 billion was earmarked for statutory transfers, N6.83 trillion for non-debt recurrent costs, N792.39 billion for overhead costs, and N5.35 trillion for capital expenditure.

Buhari said:

“We expect the total fiscal operations of the federal government to result in a deficit of N6.26 trillion.”

“This represents 3.39 percent of estimated GDP, slightly above the 3 percent threshold set by the Fiscal Responsibility Act 2007. Countries around the world have to of necessity over-shoot their fiscal thresholds for their economies to survive and thrive.

“We need to exceed this threshold considering our collective desire to continue tackling the existential security challenges facing our country.”
