President Muhammadu Buhari presented the 2017 Appropriation Bill to a joint session of the National Assembly today, December 14. The presentation of the N7.298 trillion 2017 budget with 20.4% increase over the 2016 estimate was scheduled for 10am but did not start till 2.18pm. The 2017 budget was benchmarked at N305 against the US dollar ($1) with 2.2 million barrels. The 2017 budget also sets a benchmark of $42.5 per barrel of oil, as against $38 in 2016.
The president apologized for the delay, saying he had to travel to Banjul in Gambia to convince President Yahyah Jammeh to hand over power to Adama Barrow, the president-elect. Below are 6 takeaways from Buhari’s speech during the presentation of the budget.
1. Building the nation’s economy
The president said for the nation to achieve self-sufficiency, more work needs to be done.
"I hereby make a special appeal to states to make land available to farmers," he said.
2. Increase the production of oil
Buhari noted that his administration was determined to get the production of oil back to at least 2.2 million bpd. 



3. Infrastructure
The government will focus on the development of infrastructure, especially road and rail in 2017.
4. Power sector
He said this sector is experiencing funding issues though there has been an intervention. He said a provision was made in the 2017 budget to offset the country's electricity bills.
5. The war against insurgency
Buhari said his administration was committed to maintaining peace and security nationwide. “We will continue to fortify our defence spending till all our enemies within and without are subdued. The people who voted for us are waiting for us to change the course of this nation,” he said.
6. Provisions in the budget
He disclosed that N100billion was allocated to the judiciary to allow them do their job with independence. Defence got the budgetary allocation or N140billion, water resources N85billion, interior N63billion, education N58billion, UBE commission N92billion, FCT N37billion and NDDC N61billion. Buhari expressed optimism that the 2017 budget will make the lives of Nigerians better than it did in 2016.
