We Had A Budget Surplus Of ₦89 Billion In 2019, Lagos State Corrects BudgIT



Lagos State is economically and financially solid, the government has said. This is contrary to the publication by @BudgITng, a public finance analyst, titled ‘Ability of States to Meet Monthly Recurrent Expenditure and loan Repayment Obligations, 2019’, which the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu administration described as “misinformation”.

BudgITng has apologized for its error
Here are the facts: Lagos State continues to meet all its recurrent and loan service obligations and the information that was published in incorrect, inaccurate and a gross distortion of the actual facts

The accurate information that ought to have been stated in the table published by BudgITng is provided as extracted from Lagos State’s published 2019 Audited Financial Statements: As indicated in Lagos State’s published Financial Statements the information in the table published by BudgITng should have correctly indicated a surplus of N89 billion (Eighty-Nine Billion Naira).

Lagos State Government continues to efficiently explore options in both the Financial and Capital Markets, to extract optimal funding solutions, which will enhance the administration’s ability to deliver on the construction, renewal and improvement of the deficit in social and physical infrastructure for the benefit of Lagosians; who represent 10% of Nigeria’s population.

In the year under review (2019), Lagos State restructured all existing internal loan facilities to 14% per annum, from between 18% and 20% per annum. These rates have even more recently been re-negotiated to circa 12% per annum. Lagos is the only State that is not reliant on the allocation from the Federal Account Allocation Committee, with Internally Generated Revenues representing circa 72% of the State’s aggregate revenues to enable it address challenges faced by megacities world over.As at August 2020, Lagos State’s Internal Revenue Service is doing 103% above budget, and well above 2019 figures, despite the COVID-19 pandemic which demonstrates the fiscal resilience of the Babajide Sanwo-Olu administration for a Greater Lagos.

Lagos State is economically and financially viable and the Government of Lagos State continues to expand funding sources whilst also ensuring that prudence and sustainability are at the fore of all funding and expenditure decisions.
