Productivity of the Nigerian Tax System: 1970-1990
Working Papers from African Economic Research Consortium
Given the negative impact of persistent unsustainable fiscal deficits on the Nigerian economy, there is now a consensus among interested parties on the need to address the problem effectively. The literature suggests three approaches for this purpose: increase in revenue, reduction in expenditure, or a continuation of both. An appraisal of the budgetary process in Nigeria shows that annual expenditure proposals are always anchored on projected revenue, thus the accuracy of revenue projection is a necessary condition for devising an appropriate framework for fiscal deficit management in Nigeria.
