FEDERAL Government is mulling a reduction of the benchmark used adopted projected oil earnings in the 2020 budget to $30 per barrel.

This represents about 60 per cent slash from $57 on which national revenue from crude oil was predicated in the fiscal year.

Federal Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, announced this yesterday after a meeting between the executive arm of government and the leadership of National Assembly in Abuja.

 

According to Ahmed, the meeting was convened to review the 2020 budget and Medium Term Expenditure Framework, particularly against the background of the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on the global economy.
