Nigeria Budget 2012

On Tuesday 13 December 2011, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria presented the 2012 Federal Budget proposal to the joint session of the National Assembly under the theme “Fiscal consolidation, inclusive growth and job creation”.

The budget for the coming year appears to address key sectors of the economy with specific fiscal and monetary policies for the actualisation of the goals. However, some of the goals which are probably well intentioned may not be realistic considering other related factors.
