Ingulsrud said. ext. on Wednesday said the implementation of 2018 Appropriation Bill passed by the senate should commence immediately. He said the immediate implementation of the budget will enable Nigerians to “benefit from the objective of the budget and opportunities it opens” Speaking on the floor of the Upper Legislative Chamber Saraki urged agencies of government to eliminate unnecessary bureaucracy and speed up the procurement process According to Saraki “Distinguished colleagues let me thank you so much for the industry you have put into bringing us to this point Let me thank the relevant sub-committees especially for the patriotism and commitment to the delivery of a more efficiency oriented budget “When we received the 2018 Draft Appropriation Bill I reiterated the need for us to reassess the relationship between oil and our economy We must grow our economy away from oil Hopefully the current budget when signed into law should help us in this regard especially with the coming into focus for implementation the economic reform bills we have passed so far and those on the way to full passage “We have always believed that government spending must continue to grow on issues relevant to the welfare and security of our people In the same vein government spending should reduce in areas where the private sector is better placed to catalyse progress This will free up funds for Education Health Water and Sanitation services amongst others “On this note it with great delight that I announce that the 2018 Budget has met the threshold of reserving at least 1% of total budget to health This is historic We were focused on this commitment of the 1% set aside for the Basic Health Care Provision Fund (BHCPF) We promised and we have delivered “For us this is not a commitment to numbers; it is a commitment to the health and well-being of our people It is a commitment to ‘Making Nigeria Stronger’ We expect that this will continue and even inch upwards as we work to eradicate malaria and significantly reduce infant and maternal mortality The statistics that show Nigeria as having one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world – is not the Nigeria we want to leave behind for our children The journey starts now; let us not look back “As you will recall I had indicated the need for the Executive and the Legislature to come together especially in the formation and passage of the Appropriation Bill However while we may have made progress in the formation stages there is a lot more that needs to happen to minimise delays and other stumbling blocks in the process “One of the symptoms of the unhelpful aspects of the prevailing culture hampering the process remains the neglect or refusal of certain agencies of government to honour invitations to budget defence It is our hope that we will see a major change in this regard going forward “The Petroleum Industry Governance Bill (PIGB) has been passed; it should of course be duly signed and implemented so that our people can reap the full dividends of this landmark legislation We are committed to passing all three parts of the legislation – ie Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) – thereby ushering in major reforms that will sanitise the oil industry I am confident that we will redouble efforts towards passing other major component parts of the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) – namely the Fiscal and Host Communities Bills – a process that is currently ongoing “Further to the goal of increasing independent revenue there is the need to review agreements that government has signed with some private sector service providers It is pertinent to observe that many of these agreements are biased and clearly not in the interest of the country These are important steps toward freeing up funding for our critical sectors especially now with the increasing need for strengthening our security architecture and capacity across the country to improve on the safety and confidence of our people in government’s ability to provide for their welfare and security “It is also hoped that we have put together a Budget that will lend itself easily to the government priority of revamping the economy creating jobs and fuelling the economic recovery in a manner that has meaning for the ordinary man on the street “We would like to see that the process of implementation of the budget starts immediately so that our people will begin to benefit from the objective of the budget and opportunities it opens In order for us to have an efficient budget implementation we will advise that agencies of government eliminate unnecessary bureaucracy and speed up the procurement process “I congratulate us all once again on this accomplishment of passing the 2018 Appropriations Bill; and I enjoin everyone in the legislature and the Executive to do their very best to ensure its successful implementation for the greater development of our country” The Kaduna State Government has imposed a 24-hour curfew on the Kasuwan Magani community This was disclosed in a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor (Media and Publicity) Samuel Aruwan on Thursday Kasuwan Magani is situated in Kajuru Local Government Area of the state Although the statement did not give details on why the government imposed the curfew it stated that it was with immediate effect Singh, As of Monday,U. May and her government have given precious little information on what kind of relationship the UK wants to have with the bloc after it leaves This has frustrated the 27 other countries in the union who want to end the uncertainty as soon as possible So Barnier at his first press conference on Tuesday made clear that time was running out The Brexit deal must be brokered by October 2018 he said to give parliaments time to ratify any accord before the two-year deadline of March 2019 "Time will be short" he said in an announcement that reportedly took Downing Street by surprise "We are entering uncharted waters The work will be legally complex politically sensitive and with important consequences" He was using Mays own timetable of triggering Article 50 of the EU treaty which formally starts a two-year exit negotiation period before April next year This promised date which MPs have now effectively rubberstamped is one of the few concrete pieces of information May has given on the issue of Brexit While May claims that keeping her cards close to her chest is part of her negotiating strategy she is also struggling to unite the very different wishes of the Leave and Remain camps within her own party and even within her own cabinet Highlighting these divides Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson one of the leaders of the Leave campaign this month publicly questioned a suggestion by Chancellor Philip Hammond and Brexit Secretary David Davis that Britain could pay to have access to the EU markets The question of whether Britain might pursue a transitional Brexit deal with certain industries retaining access to the single market after withdrawal has also been met with indignation by Euroskeptic MPs in her party That issue of access to the single market has emerged as the main sticking point given that the EU has firmly stated that such access would only be possible if Britain allows EU citizens the freedom to live and work there That is a hard sell given that many Britons voted Leave because of concerns about immigration Consistent suggestions that they can both “have their cake and eat it” have infuriated EU officials “[Brexit] can be smooth and it can be orderly but it requires a different attitude on the part of the British government” said Jeroen Dijsselbloem Dutch finance minister and head of the Eurozone area "The things I have been hearing so far are incompatible with smooth and incompatible with orderly” On the point of access to the single market the EU for now appears united something of a rarity in a bloc which has in recent years made a regular spectacle of arguing among itself over issues ranging from Russian sanctions the migrant crisis and economic policy Maintaining that unity on Brexit as the bloc enters months and years of tough negotiations will be difficult Techau said as the 27 members have their own domestic agendas Barnier cited such unity as one of the four cornerstones of the EUs strategy along with the principle that there could be no negotiations until Article 50 was triggered that there could be "no cherry-picking" of the single market and that Britain should not expect an easy ride "Third countries can never have the same rights and benefits since they are not subject to the same obligations" he stressed One concession he raised was the possibility of an interim deal to be signed at the end of the two-year negotiating period Officials believe a full deal on new trade deals between the EU and the UK could take as much as five years to reach An interim agreement would buy more time That’s necessary Techau says when the process of Brexit is fiercely complex and requires agreements on everything from research projects to the protection of specific regional food specialities "[You need] an intermediate regime when the EU is out but some of its rules apply for a certain period of time so that the businesses and people affected by it have more of a grace period to prepare themselves for the shock" But such a deal would only be possible if Britain is very clear about the nature of its future relationship Barnier said Tuesday May has now promised to give more clarity before the end of March but European leaders will want more specifics than a call for a “red white and blue” Brexit As Guy Verhofstadt Barnier’s counterpart in the European parliament was quick to point out those
