Sununu recalled that the president, Muhammadu Buhari had urged the national assembly to assist the executive in compelling MDA’s to remit IGR, stating that it was only through such remittances that the government could effectively finance its budget.

Consequently, the Committee dismissed the budgets proposed by four agencies for failing to provide records of 25 per cent remittance of their internally generated revenues.

Nigeria Needs Urgent Economic Diversification – AfDB

The African Development Bank (AfDB), has stated that Nigeria, Africa’s largest economy, needs urgent economic diversification to move the country from a single income source (oil and minerals) towards multiple income sources.

This was disclosed by Prof. Oyelaran-Oyeyinka Oyebanji, Senior Special Adviser on Industrialisation at African Development Bank, at the 22nd Founder’s Day Lecture of the Igbinedion University, on Monday.

In pursuit of long-term recovery and sustainable development, Nigeria needs urgent economic diversification. Nothing is more demonstrative of the danger of over-reliance on a single or narrow range of commodities than the recent crash in oil price we saw in 2020 due to COVID-19, he said.

Economic diversification entails a shift away from a single income source (oil and minerals) toward multiple income sources from an increasing spectrum of sectors, products and markets, Oyebanji stated.
