FG Will Not Review Budget Benchmark, CME Says
The Coordinating Minister for the Economy, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has said that the Federal Government will not review the benchmark price for the 2015 budget.
The Minister who disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday by her spokesman, Paul Nwanuikwu noted that continued volatility of international price of oil has made it difficult to review the budget benchmark price.
“We are not reviewing the Budget Benchmark price at the moment. The price of oil is still quite volatile and we do not know how it will bottom out.
“We are taking a scenario-based approach in handling the 2015 Budget. That means that for various levels of oil price, we have additional measures both on the revenue and expenditure side, which will kick in when it bottoms out.
“The Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) is currently at the National Assembly. We have been working together with our lawmakers to ensure that we steer the country in the right direction during this period,” the statement added.
