Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau State has signed N225, 058,026,306 billion 2014 budget into law even as he noted monitoring is the major bane of any budgetary implementation.
The budget, which is tagged “budget of continuity and inclusive growth” was signed into law on Monday at the Government House Rayfield in Jos.
His words: “I therefore wish to direct the state planning commission to ensure MDA’s strictly comply with budgetary provision.
“In line with this, I charge all Ministries, Departments and Agencies to immediately commence the process of budget implementation so as to avoid last minute rush.
“It equally means financial prudence should be upheld in all government dealings. This is because we will not relent in our fight against corruption.
“I wish to caution MDA Heads to ensure this implementation is not only on paper, but is carried out to the later. MDA’s are therefore advice to strengthen their internal monitoring machinery”.
In the budget, capital expenditure is N143, 072,031,368.00, while the recurrent expenditure is N 81,985,994,938.00 billion.
