TINUBU WANTS SENATE TO APPROVE SECURITIZATION OF N7.3TRL WAYS AND MEANS IN CRF                                                                                                      30-12-23

By Sadiq Aminu                                                     President Bola Tinubu has requested approval of the Senate for securitisation of the balance of ways and Means in the Consolidated Revenue Fund (CRF) of the Federal Government of Nigeria.
The request is contained in a letter addressed to the Senate and read by Senate President Godswill Akpabio at plenary.
In the letter President Tinubu drew the attention of the senate to the provisions of section 38 of the CBN Act 2007, which stipulates that the apex bank may grant temporary advances to the Federal Government.

He explained that the request is In respect of temporary deficiency of budget revenue provided, such overdrafts do not surpass five per cent of government revenue from the previous year.

“The senate is invited to note that from available information by the CBN, the Consolidated Revenue Fund (CRF) account of the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) stood at N7.3trillon as at Dec 2023, that is due to domestic debt servicing, principal and interest.

“While the Federal Government is considering various measures to forestall the use of ways and means advances for domestic debt servicing.

“It has become highly imperative to securitise the outstanding ways and means advance of the Federal Government of Nigeria before the end of the year.

“The securitization of the Ways and Means will lead to the realisation of the following benefits among others.

” Reduction of debt service costs as interest rate for the securitize ways and means is lowered at nine per cent compared to three per cent previously adopted.

“The savings arising from the much lower interest rate will help to to reduce the deficit in the budget and improvement in debts transparency as securitised ways and means advances are included in the public debts statistics.

“In view of the forgoing the senate is invited to kindly consider and approve the securitisation of the outstanding debit balance of N7.3trillion in the same order as at Dec 2023.
