Mr. Udoma Udo-Udoma, Nigeria’s Minister of Budget and National Planning, has said the 2017-2019 Medium Term Expenditure Framework would be ready and submitted to the National Assembly for consideration by October 2016.

Udo-Udoma said this in Abuja on Monday at a forum with civil society groups and the organised private sector on the 2017-2019 Medium Term Expenditure Framework.

He also said the Federal Government had expended N2.1 trillion out of the N6.06 trillion approved budget for 2016 while only N253 billion of the N1.8 trillion earmarked capital projects had been spent so far.

“Demand and supply factors are expected to keep crude oil prices low in the medium term, compared to the period prior to mid-2014.

“We are considering a conservative oil price benchmark of $42.5 per barrel for 2017, $45 per barrel in 2018 and $50 per barrel in 2019.

“We estimate oil production to be 2.2 million barrels per day for 2017; 2.3 million barrels per day in 2018 and 2.4 million barrels per day for 2019.

“We have pegged exchange rate for 2017, 2018 and 2019 at N290 to a dollar.”

On the revenue projection for the 2017-2019 MTEF, the minister said, “A significant increase in non-oil revenue receipts is projected due to a gradually recovering domestic economy and government’s expected improvement in FIRS tax collection efforts.

“Company Income Tax is projected to increase from N1.79 trillion in 2016 to over N1.86 trillion in 2017 and beyond.

“VAT collections to increase by about 42.4 per cent 2017. Operating surpluses projection have been moderated downwards for 2017 and thereafter a modest growth.

“Customs collections are projected to moderated downwards for 2017 and thereafter a modest growth.”

Udo-Udoma said recovered of misappropriated and looted funds would also form part of their anticipated revenue for the years to come. (Independent)
