President Muhammadu Buhari, on Friday, said the Federal Government targets N1.92tn in oil revenues in 2023.
Buhari disclosed this while presenting the 2023 appropriation bill to a joint session of the National Assembly in Abuja.
The President said the Government would spend N20.15tn for the 2023 fiscal year.
N6.31tn and N2.42tn of that amount will go to debt servicing and Government owned enterprises, respectively.
The rest include statutory transfers, non-debt recurrent costs, personnel cost, pensions, gratuities and overheads, sinking fund, amongst others.
Buhari also cautioned the lawmakers against budget padding and interference of some committees in the budget approval process. A practice he said “must stop.”
The President, therefore, directed the lawmakers to thoroughly consider the submitted copy of the appropriation bill and revert to the Presidency within the shortest probable time.
