The #ExecutiveOrder7 Ministry is growing. That’s the Road Tax Credit Scheme launched by PMB Jan 2019.

Mainstream Energy Solutions Ltd @Officialmesl has now applied to be a part of the Scheme. They will be financing 3 roads, totaling 204km, at total cost of N74.4B.

Two quotes from HM @tundefashola, today:

“We can clearly see that the appetite for the private sector to invest in public infrastructure is increasing.”

“There’s a distance between public policy & results, it takes some time [for manifestation], but we are now seeing results.”
HM @FMICNigeria, Alh Lai Mohammed: We had a fruitful meeting with @Facebook yesterday. We expressed our displeasure that Facebook has become a platform of choice for some Nigerians in the diaspora to incite violence and arson, and they need to do more to tackle this.”

Just in. President @MBuhari has approved the reduction in the cost of Forms for JAMB UTME, NECO SSCE and the Basic Education Certificate Examination.

With effect from January 2019 the cost of JAMB UTME Form will drop from N5,000 to N3,500. NECO will drop from N11,350, to N9,850.
Minister of Education Adamu Adamu announced this just now at today’s #FECBrief. He said President @MBuhari directed the Ministry to look into the reduction following the significant improvement in revenues being remitted to the Treasury by the Education Agencies.
The Exam Agencies are not meant to be revenue generating bodies, they’re only supposed to cover costs/operating expenses. The sharp increase in remittances by JAMB(from less than N60m in 2010–2016 to >N15 BILLION in 2017/18) have shown that the fees being charged could be reduced
