The people’s Democratic Party (PDP)Niger State have received the news that the Niger State Assembly have expressed frustration and concern over the enormous resources that have been carted away from the state coffers with nothing to show in the 2019 budget, while the state degrades into the labyrinths of hopeless rudderless trajectory of wide spread poverty, Zero infrastructure and an emasculated citizenry.
This was contained in a statement signed by the PDP state secretary, Bar. Sulaiman M. Zhigun, He said “PDP is vindicated when the member representing Borgu Constituency (APC), Honorable Mohammed Abba Bala, who led the deliberation on the floor of the house of Assembly said that “despite the over N126 billion approved for capital expenditure in the 2019 budget, ‘there was nothing to show for it in the local government areas across the state.’
“A lot of money was said to have been spent on roads and transport, but no work was done,” The Honorable Member added.
Nigerlites will recall that the PDP Niger State has described the 2020 budget proposal as submitted by Governor Abubakar Sani Bello as “BUDGET OF NOTHINGNESS, PROFOUND SLEAZINESS”
“The people’s democratic party, Niger state has perused through the 2020 budget proposals presented to the state House of Assembly by Governor Abubakar Sani Bello, on the 10th December 2019, titled “Budget of Inclusion for sustainable development”
The PDP finds the tittle rather ludicrous, as the content is not worth more than the paper it is printed upon.”
The revelation by the Honorable Member is just a tip of the iceberg, as the budget debate continue more cand of worms will be exposed to Nigerlites.
The PDP calls on the state Assembly to do a thorough job of scrutinizing the previous budgets that has brought nothing to the citizens” the statement added.
