President Muhammadu Buhari had earlier today presented the 2016 budget to a joint session of the National Assembly.

He made the presentation of the N6.08 trillion budget proposalat a ceremony moderated by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

It was gathered that deficit will be financed by a combination of domestic borrowing of N984 billion, and foreign borrowing of N900 billion totalling N1.84 trillion.

According to Channels TV, there is a proposed 9% reduction in non-debt recurrent expenditure, from N2.59 trillion in the 2015 Budget to N2.35 trillion in 2016.

The budgeted N300 billion for Special Intervention Programs, takes the total amount for non-debt recurrent expenditure to N2.65 trillion.

The Efficiency Unit set up by the current Administration, together with effective implementation of GIFMIS and IPPIS, will drive a reduction of overheads by at least 7%, personnel costs by 8% and other service wide votes by 19%.
