The Managing Director, Saleh Dunoma, made the disclosure while defending the 2019 budget proposals of the agency before the House of Representatives Committee on Aviation on Wednesday in Abuja.

According to him, the authority is proposing for 2019 a budget of N101.67 billion as against N88,805,462,776 for 2018 which gives a 14.5 per cent increase.

“This is in anticipation of increase in passenger traffic as well as boost in the non-aeronautical revenue base of the Authority as already highlighted in the 2018 budget performance.

“The total proposed revenue for 2019 of N101.67 billion is made up of N60.33 billion from the Aeronautical Revenue Sources N26.03 billion from the from the non-aeronautical sources and N16.92 billion as anticipated debts to be recovered.

“The Authority is also proposing a Total Recurrent Expenditure of N58.44 billion with N34.72 billion as Personnel Costs and other related costs, N23.72 billion as overhead costs for 2019

“A proposal of N17.82 billion for capital budget against N16.78 billion approved for the year 2018.

Mr Donuma said that the 6.2 per cent increase in capital expenditure between 2018 and 2019 is largely as a result of “Planned improvement in Infrastructural development across the airports and efforts in certification with Port Harcourt and Kano international airports in view for the year 2019″.

“The provisional estimate of N25.42 billion which is 25 per cent of the total revenue is set aside against which the authority will be making quarterly interim remittances pending the audit of financial statements in determining the final operating surplus as stipulated by the Fiscal Responsibility Act.”

The official asked the committee to pass the budget and also assist them in recovering most debts owed the agency by various aviation organisations.

According to him, “we have made a presentation of our performance on the 2018 budget and of course our proposals for the 2019 appropriation budget, which we submitted to the House Committee on Aviation for their consideration and approval”.

“This has been accepted and we are waiting for further direction.

“We pray that the committee will approve the budget and secondly, we want them to assist us to collect our debts from other organisations,” he said.

Similarly, the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT), Zaria, Kaduna State, also projected its 2019 budget to be a total of N4.78 billion.

The Rector and Chief Executive of the College, Mohammed Abdulsalami, while making the presentation at the House of Representatives Committee on Aviation said N3 billion has been projected as Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).

He said that the figure represented 10.5 per cent reduction in budgetary provision when compared to N3.36 billion appropriated in 2018.

“In 2019, the college is proposing a budget of N4.78 billion comprising N1.78 billion for Personnel Cost, N243.40 billion, for Overhead Cost and N2.76 billion for Capital Expenditure.

“This represents a 24 per crnt reduction in budgetary envelope when compared to the sum of N6.28 billion appropriated in 2018.

“In 2019, the College is proposing an IGR of N3 billion comprising N2.85 billion for Overhead Cost and N150 million for replacement of insured assets.

This represents a 10.5 per cent reduction in budgetary provision when compared to the sum of N3.36 billion appropriated in 2018.”

In her remarks, the Chairman of the Committee, Nkiru Onyejiocha, charged the agencies and parastatals in the Aviation sector to ensure that all monetary reports were harmonised and presented to the Committee for proper documentation.

“We want to see everything in black and white. This 8th assembly is winding down and we will want to give a handover note to others.

“We are trying to live up to the next level agenda of this government,” she said.
