Maiden FEC Meeting of the #NextLevel kicks off with an Address by President @MBuhari #FECBrief
President @MBuhari: To improve service delivery and efficiency we have decided to restructure some functions, which has led to the creation of new ministries:

#FECBrief #InauguralFEC
PMB: We have merged Finance and Budget & National Planning.

We have also created a Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs to institutionalize our various interventions that support some of our poorest and most distressed citizens.

#FECBrief #InauguralFEC
PMB: We split the Ministry of Power, Works and Housing, and split Transport & Aviation, to improve delivery of infrastructure; and we created a Ministry of Police Affairs to help advance our security reforms #FECBrief #InauguralFEC
PMB: We have created a Ministry of Special Duties and Intergovernmental affairs. The Minister will coordinate multiagency and inter-Ministry functions as designated by the President. #FECBrief #InauguralFEC
PMB: I have asked the SGF to draft a schedule of ministerial responsibilities for my review and approval. #FECBrief #InauguralFEC

[Context: what’s being referred to here is the delineation of duties and responsibilities between Ministers and their Ministers of State]

Just to add: one more structural reform for #NextLevel:

Minister of @FinMinNigeria: FEC has approved the commencement of the process for an increase in VAT, from 5% to 7.2%. The Process will involve extensive consultations and also a review of VAT Act. Will not be implemented immediately — not until VAT Act is reviewed. #FECBrief
[An increase in VAT means more money for State and Local Governments. VAT sharing formula is 15% for FG and 85% for States and LGAs. #FECBrief ]
Min of @FinMinNigeria: FEC has directed that Consultations begin, on VAT increase, at various levels - with States, LGAs, private sector, General public.

We hope the VAT increase can take effect in 2020. But it CANNOT take effect until VAT Act is amended by National Assembly.
