The N21.83 trillion budgeted for the 2023 fiscal year is an increase of N1.32 trillion over the executive proposal of N20.51 trillion.

A breakdown of the budget indicates an Allocation of N967.5 billion for Statutory Transfers, N6.6 trillion for Debt Servicing, N8.3 trillion for Recurrent Expenditure, and N5.9 trillion for capital expenditure respectively.

The President explained that the 2022 Supplementary Appropriation Act would enable the administration to respond to the havoc caused by the recent nationwide floods on infrastructure and agriculture sectors.
