Obviously, the Nigerian economy is still shaking as a result of various factors brought about

by both government and private individuals.

One of those worried about the current state of the economy is Ben Akabueze - who is the Director -General , Budget Office of the Federation.

Speaking recently at the 2019 Budget Round- Table in Kaduna, Ben made known his beliefs that the proposed N8 . 83 trillion 2019 national budget will give more opportunities to the organised private sector to flourish.

While delivering his paper which he titled “ Business Opportunities in the Proposed 2019 Federal Government Budget : Prospects and Challenges for the Private Sector . ”, Ben, who was represented by Gideon Muti, confessed that the government can't give enough attention to fixing infrastructure as far as this year's budget is concerned.


Nevertheless, according to him, the focus of capital expenditure allocation in the proposal was hinged on the major priorities (including agriculture and improved transparency) of the Emergency Recovery Growth Plan.

He made it known that investment in these areas would come to pass in partnership with the private sector.

 The event was organised by the Kaduna Chambers of Commerce, Industry , Mines and Agriculture (KADCCIMA ) , in conjunction with with Budget Research and Development Policy Advocacy Centre.
