Nigeria: Major Gen. Buhari Signs Finance Bill Into Law

Buhari
Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday signed the country’s finance bill into law.

In a post on Twitter, Buhari said, “I am pleased to announce that this morning I signed into law the Finance Bill, 2019.

“This is the first time since the return of democracy in 1999 that a federal budget is being accompanied by the passage of a Finance Bill specially designed to support its implementation, and to create a truly enabling environment for business and investment by the private sector.

We introduced the Bill alongside the 2020 Budget, to:

-Reform Nigeria’s tax laws to align with global best practices;
-Support MSMEs in line with our Ease of Doing Business Reforms;
-Incentivize investments in infrastructure and capital markets;
-Raise Government revenues.

This is the first time, since the return of democracy in 1999, that a Federal Budget is being accompanied by passage of a Finance Bill specially designed to support its implementation, and to create a truly enabling environment for business and investment by the private sector.

“I thank the leadership and members of the National Assembly for the hard work and support that have gone into the passage of the landmark Deep Offshore and Inland Basin PSC Amendment Bill, and the Finance Bill; both vital to the successful implementation of the 2020 Budget.”
