N452t infrastructure funds from capital market coming

The Federal Government will source the largest chunk of about N452trillion required for various infrastructure projects under its long-term development plan from the capital market.

Minister of National Planning, Dr. Shamsuddeen Usman, who disclosed this yesterday at an infrastructure roundtable organised by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), said government will turn to the capital market to source the estimated $2.9 trillion required for Nigeria’s infrastructure development over the next three decades.

He said government will require an average of $25 billion per annum from 2014-2018, compared to between $9 billion and $10 billion currently being spent.

Government will have to aggressively increase core infrastructure stock from 35 to 40 per cent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2012 to 70 per cent by 2043 in order to close the current infrastructure gap and reach desired optimal investment, he said, adding that the recourse to the capital market, was due to inadequacy of budgetary resources in view of the large financing requirements for infrastructure developments.

Usman said government will have to source funds from the private sector, noting that recent privatisation trends demonstrated that the private sector can take about 48 per cent share.

He said the private sector investment requirement is projected to increase from 46 per cent, to 48 per cent during the first operational plan, 2014-2018, while public sector investment is projected at 52 per cent, adding that only about 15 per cent of public sector funding is projected to be from the treasury, while the balance of 85 per cent will be sourced through the bond market.

Also speaking, the Minister of State for Finance, Dr. Yerima Ngama, said the infrastructural development plan is part of the long-term plan for stimulating Nigeria’s economic growth, and launching the country onto a path of sustained and rapid socio-economic development.

He outlined that the development plan serves as a capital allocation framework, which identifies the required investments to bring infrastructure in Nigeria in line with the country’s long term growth aspirations.
