The President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government, has proposed to spend N9.4 billion on Residential and Office rents for Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs, as well as several Foreign Missions, in 2018.
The 2018 budget submitted to the National Assembly recently, showed that residential apartments for top civil servants, including official quarters for personnel in Nigeria’s Foreign Missions, will consume N5 billion, while office rents for MDAs and Foreign Missions, will gulp N4.48 billion.
The Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, last year, revealed that Nigeria spent N3.55 billion on rent, in a three year period, from 2012 to 2014.
Analysis shows that the amount to be spent on rent this year, is about 265 percent more than the amount spent on the same purpose, between 2012 and 2014.
Adeosun had tasked the Efficiency Unit, to focus on the issuance of price guidelines and initiatives for reducing expenditure on rent on office and residential buildings, but it appears not much has been done in this direction.
There have been calls for the utilisation of confiscated buildings recovered by the Federal Government, for public office and residential purposes.

The breakdown of the 2018 budget proposal, showed that the Federal Government will pay 150 residential rents, and 232 office rents next year.
Analysis of the office rents showed that the country’s Foreign Missions in Algiers, Hong Kong, and Berlin, are the most expensive rents among the Foreign Mission.
The Federal Government will pay N48.97 million for the Foreign Mission office rent in Algiers, N39.20 million in Hong Kong, N30.45 million in Berlin, as well as N48.87 million for the office of the Consulate General, Frankfurt, Germany.
Top spenders in office rents include: the Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (N144 million), Directorate of State Security Service (N121.64 million), Police Formation and Command Headquarters (N115.10 million), Nigerian Prisons Service (N103.62 million), Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (N98.53 million), Pension Transitional Arrangement Department Headquarters (N93.2 million), Department of Petroleum Resources (N93.79 million), Federal Road Safety Commission (N80.94 million), and National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (N73.99 million).
Others include: Border Communities Development Agency Headquarters (N73.55 million), Consumer Protection Council (N70 million), Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (N64.50 million), Nigeria Immigration Service (N64 million), National Productivity Centre (N48.81 million), Independent Corrupt Practices and Related Offences Commission (N48.72 million), Code of Conduct Bureau (N48.42 million), and National Directorate of Employment (N40.5 million).
Also noticeable are: Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (N35 million), National Council of Arts and Culture (N36.10 million), National Film and Video Censor Board (N36 million), Nigeria Atomic Energy Commission and Its Centres (N27 million), Bureau of Public Procurement (N25.50 million), and Military Pension Board (N17.37 million).
It was also gathered that eight Ministries also pay rent in the nation’s capital, Abuja, as included in the 2018 budget proposal.
The Ministries include: the Federal Ministry of Niger Delta (N70.7 million), Ministry Of Mines And Steel Development Headquarters (N46.35 million), Federal Ministry of Information and Culture Headquarters (N27.07 million), Federal Ministry of Environment Headquarters (N20 million), Federal Ministry Of Power Works and Housing Headquarters (N10.81 million), Ministry of Foreign Affairs Headquarters (N10.50 million), Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment Headquarters (N8.92 million), and Federal Ministry of Labour And Employment Headquarters (N3.21 million).
Findings also showed that many Universities, Colleges of Education, Boards, and Educational Councils, also included office rent lines in their budgets.
Here are a few: the Federal Polytechnic Bonny (N11.5 million), Federal University of Gashua (N8.81 million), Librarians Registration Council of Nigeria (N3.57 million), National Primary Health Care Development Agency (N3.6 million), University Of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, Ilorin (N1.23 million), and Michael Imodu Institute of Labour Studies (N3.7 million).
An examination of the budget for the residential rents as contained in the proposal, showed that Nigeria’s Defense Intelligence Missions will gulp the highest amount of N1.4 billion, followed by the Air Force, N124 million.
The budget for house rent for Nigeria’s over 20 Defense Missions abroad, comes at a time when federal Lawmakers have advocated for their holistic review.
