He explained that the late passage of the 2012 budget was due to the changes in the cabinet, the appointment of new ministers and other programmes that he described as choking.Jonathan said to guard against late budgeting; MDAs will have to defend their 2013 budgets between May and June so that between July and August they would have been through while he would be submitting the appropriation bill to the National Assembly in September.That way, he explained, the National Assembly would have sufficient time to have robust debates and inputs into the budget and have it passed on time to make implementation to commence in January and end in December.He said he would no longer allow extension of budgetary periods into the New Year.He recalled submitting a budget proposal of N4.479 trillion on December 13, 2011 for the 2012 budget with the oil benchmark set at $70 a barrel.The initial budget, he continued, had a capital budget of N1.32 trillion and a recurrent of N3.429 trillion in the hope that the planned full deregulation of the downstream petroleum sector would commence. However, he said this had to change as he listened to the protesting voices of Nigerians and a partial removal of subsidy on petrol was adopted.Even at that, Jonathan said his administration had to review the revenue and expenditure profile of the budget to make provision for N888 billion fuel subsidy in the budget.He said on March 15, the National Assembly adjusted the benchmark to $72 dollars and passed a budget of N4.697 trillion with N1.34 trillion capital for capital and N3.357 trillion for recurrent expenditure, a situation that he admitted led to lengthy discussions that produced the budget.“The budget has an aggregate expenditure of N4.697 trillion (excluding the appropriation of N180 billion for programmes and projects encapsulated under the SURE progamme). The total Federal Government revenue forecast is N3.561 trillion based on a benchmark oil price of US$72 per barrel, which is US$2 higher than the initial proposal of US$70 per barrel. The additional resources were used to increase the capital and to reduce the deficit to a manageable level that we can finance without excessive borrowing.Jonathan gave the details of the expenditure as follows:“Capital Expenditure is N1.34 trillion, which is 28.5 per cent of the aggregate expenditure. One of the main goals of this administration is to complete and exit the large stock of on-going projects and programmes. Thus, the 2012 budget is focused on completing viable on-going projects, in accordance with the Transformation Agenda, which will quickly deliver tangible and significant added value to Nigerians.“Non-debt Recurrent Expenditure is at N2.425 trillion, which is 52 per cent of the total budget compared to 54 per cent of the aggregate budget in 2011. This is in line with Government’s determination to correct the structural imbalance in our expenditure profile where recurrent spending has outstripped the growth of spending on capital projects in recent times. Statutory Transfers is N372.59 billion.“Based on the above and in line with Government’s medium-term strategy, the share of the recurrent spending in aggregate expenditure has declined from 74.4 per cent in 2011 to 71.5 per cent in 2012. The deficit is 2.85 per cent of GDP, which is in line with the provisions of the Fiscal Responsibility Act, 2007, which pegs this at 3 per cent of GDP.He said the gains so far made in the economy through strict implementation of policies had led to improved living standards of the people and that his drive was to focus on investments that will lead to sustained economic growth and create jobs.

Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Bruce Jenner, Kris Jenner
We already know that Khloé Kardashian Odom thinks sister Kim and Kanye West are "cute together", and Kourtney has simply stated, "Who knows?"
But what do Kris and Bruce Jenner have to say about the rumored relationship?
Well, when the family matriarch called in to Ryan Seacrest's radio show this morning, here's what she shared.
"First of all, he's been a friend of the family for so long and so I love them both," Kris said. "But, you know, I stopped trying to make judgments on who they [her kids] go out with because I always get myself into trouble."
She added that when it comes to her daughter's love life, "sometimes I'm the last to know."
Meanwhile, Bruce commented on Kim and Kanye as he gave a motivational speech to students at Northeastern University in Boston on Wednesday.
Although, his remarks were clearly not as positive as his wife's.
"I'm not that excited, but we'll see," said Bruce when someone in the audience brought up the subject. "Kimberly and I have had a conversation about them and their potential relationship."
