President Muhammadu Buhari delivers 2016 Budget tagged “The Budget Of Change”

This is the full text of the president's speech at the presentation of the 2016 budget to a joint session of the National assembly today, 22nd December, 2015

2016 Budget Speech: “The Budget of Change”
Delivered By: His Excellency, Muhammadu Buhari
President, Federal Republic of Nigeria
To: A Joint Session of the National Assembly (on December 22, 2015)

I am honoured and privileged to present the 2016 Budget proposal. This is my first address before this joint session of the National Assembly. I have come here today, not only to address members of the National Assembly, but also to speak directly to the men and women who placed us here.
2. I know the state of our economy is a source of concern for many. This has been further worsened by the unbridled corruption and security challenges we have faced in the last few years. From those who have lost their jobs, to those young people who have never had a job, to the people in the North East whose families and businesses were destroyed by insurgents, this has been a difficult period in our nation’s history, lessons that we must not forget or ignore, as we plan for the future.

Brunei has banned public celebrations of Christmas, including sending festive greetings and the wearing of Santa Claus hats. Muslims seen celebrating Christmas and non-Muslims found to be organizing celebrations could face up to five years jail.

However the country's non-Muslims, who comprise 32 per cent of the 420,000 population, can celebrate Christmas in their own communities on the condition that the celebrations are not disclosed to Muslims.

Imams have told followers in the tiny Borneo nation to follow a government edict last year banning celebrations that could lead Muslims astray and damage their faith, according to the Borneo Bulletin.

Brunei has one of the world's highest standards of living thanks to its bountiful oil and gas reserves.

Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) increases power tarrif!

Sam Amadi
About two weeks ago, the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, revealed that electricity tariffs would increase and urged consumers to comply with respect to paying their bills, as he promised that the sector would record considerable improvement thereafter.

To that effect, the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has finally released the new power tariff regime, in which it outlined the various rates of increase in energy charges for consumers across the country.

It also announced the removal of fixed electricity charges for all classes of electricity consumers and noted that power users would only pay for what they consume. Confirming the tariffs increase on Monday, NERC stated that henceforth, from the next billing period, power distribution companies would no longer charge their customers monthly fixed charges.
