The N11.25bn budget on foreign trips

Editorial

EMERGING indication that ministries, departments  and agencies (MDAs) of the Federal Government will spend a whopping N11.25 billion  on foreign trips alone in the 2012 budget is deplorable, scandalous, and shamefully insensitive to the state of the nation. It amounts to no more than  unbridled expenditure and wastage of taxpayers' money in frivolous  entertainment of a few privileged public officials under the guise of  official foreign trips.

Given the current ugly state of affairs in the  country, especially, with regard to fuel subsidy removal, which has  occasioned spiralling inflation, the logical step would have been for  government to shelve most foreign trips this year to reduce cost of  governance, and show seriousness of its empathy, if any, with the people;  rather than behaving in a business as usual manner.  Government should be minded that Nigerians are deeply aggrieved over removal of fuel subsidy which, according to government, is meant to raise funds for infrastructure development, but which  has not gone down well with Nigerians.

For the same government to impose crushing tax on  the common man through its fuel policies and then turn around to earmark such  huge funds for foreign travels raises a moral question on government. President Jonathan's knee jerk reaction in reportedly aiming to reduce the  budget on foreign trips in the wake of looming national strike over the fuel subsidy, does little to assuage public feeling about the blatant rape of the  nation. Suspending foreign trips this year would have been a more sensible  measure.

Under the foreign trips largesse, reports say the  Ministry of Defence has the largest allocation of N4.14 billion, followed by the  Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Presidency, which have N3.31billion and N951million respectively. Others are Ministry of Finance, N287 million; Education Ministry,  N283.4 million; Ministry of Petroleum, N155 million; Justice, N122 million; Trade and Investment,  N109 million. The Ministry of Police Affairs was earmarked N48.5million; Youth Ministry,  N24.2 million; Women Affairs, N60.5 million; Agriculture, N34 million; and Water Resources  Ministry N49.9 million. Other ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs)  equally have various huge sums allocated to them.

Again, the penchant of public officials to fleece  the country under various guises is condemnable and it should be stopped  forthwith. The National Assembly should not approve the proposal since it is glaringly a drain on the economy. Previous globetrotting by public officials yielded no return for the country. There is nothing to suggest that this year will be different.

It is sad that foreign trips have become such a  huge drain on public purse. Nigerians were piqued at the revelation that the  Ministry of Foreign Affairs alone lavished a whopping N2.7 billion on foreign travels. The revelation came to limelight during the Ministry's 2012 budget  defence at the National Assembly.

The Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs had  rightly condemned the extravagant spending and advised that it should be cut  down. Before then, there were reports of similarly excessive expenditure on  foreign travels by members of the National Assembly. In all this, there is no accountability or proper audit of who spends what and for what purpose. That  gives room for unrestrained squandering of public funds.

It is ridiculous that in a country where capital  budget is a meagre 27 per cent, while recurrent expenditure takes the lion  share of over 70 per cent, government has not thought it wise to cut wasteful  foreign spending. And, at the same time, government is asking people to tighten their belt when it ought to show example in saving money so that the  people can take it serious.

Equally disheartening is the fact that squander mania is rooted in government's departments at the federal as well as the state levels. Governors, instead of staying in their states to address pressing  issues, are always abroad for one reason or the other. For instance, they go on pilgrimage and on each occasion with a retinue of aides, spending huge sums  on estacodes. Another example was the last Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting  (CHOGM) held in Perth, Australia, in which the Nigerian Government reportedly  went with the largest delegation of officials to the embarrassment of the  country's High Commissioner there. The large delegation did not translate to any remarkable contribution from the country at the meeting. Questions  arising from such wasteful trips have not been answered, thereby depicting government as having more than enough funds to lavish.

Government must adopt moderation as a policy. Foreign  trips should not be an
 opportunity for government officials to squander  public resources, and earn fat estacodes for doing nothing. There should be consideration  for the abject poverty in the land. Government should explore effective ways  of cutting overheads rather than engaging in unrestrained profligacy that  makes the nation a laughing stock.
(The Guardian ,2012).
This is how those criminals share everything Nigeria has.

Guys You people should not be shouting at this woman.I think she worth the building,is it because she is an ibo woman? She merited it,if not the EFCC would have gone before her.Someone that OBJ could not do anything,other than sack.If her money was illegal,OBJ would have send EFFCC to her.

This woman has worked as  Minister of Foreign Affairs of Nigeria, overseeing Nigeria’s External Relations,She has served as Minister of Finance and Economy of Nigeria,She has also head Economic team responsible for implementing a comprehensive home grown economic reform program.She held each of these positions for several years.

She worked in the East Asia Region, the last tour (1997-2000) as Country Director Malaysia, Mongolia, Laos and Cambodia during the East Asian financial crisis; two duty tours in the  Middle East Region, the last (2000-2003) as Director, Operations (deputy vice-president) of the region.

She served as as Director of Institutional Change and Strategy (1995-1997).she was Special assistant to the Senior Vice President, Operations, an assignment that enabled participation in high level policy formulation and discussions for countries as diverse as China and Burkina Faso.


This same woman served as a development economist at the World Bank, where she held the post of Vice President and Corporate Secretary.

So Tell me what is 1.2billion niara house to her.My annoyance to her is that why must she buy this house in Abuja,why not take this money and build this same house in her own state,town,Village,or even build a factory in her village and creat employment.etc,why in Abuja?

If her source of cash was illegal Efcc would have gone for her and source says that she did not purchase this house today,long ago.

If there is war in Abuja tomorrow and she was asked to run home,she will not because of his house and thats why hausa man do better than the Ibos.

A lot has to do with the money worshiping Nigerian culture. That is the problem, we worship money more than the Christians or Muslims worship God or Allah. Everybody just go to government to steal and I do not trust anyone in Nigerian government. Leaders in the first world are very careful while in government and you see people going to jail for as little as $5.000 but in Nigeria people in government steal millions and display their ill gotten wealth publicly. In Germany for example, women occupy positions of financial trust more than the men because they are less likely to be tempted to steal like the men and that is why things work over there. But in Nigeria you can neither trust the men nor women in both public nor private sectors. What a national shame!

YOU CAN KEEP YOUR RUBBISH LINK TO YOURSELF AND DON'T SEND ME ANY LINK THAT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE IN WHAT MY COMMENT IS BASED ON.I DON'T REALLY KNOW YOUR STAND POINT.
