Summit wants Kogi budget ministry overhauled, commissioner sacked


Kogi state

Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has been asked to remove the state Commissioner for Budget and Planning, Hon. Paul Maiwada, as well as re-organise the ministry for effective performance.

Participants at a one-day stakeholders’ budget summit by Centre for Human Rights and Conflict Resolution, (CHRCR) in partnership with Shehu Musa Yar’ Adua Foundation and support of Mac Arthur Foundation, decried the copy and paste budgeting syndrome that has become the hallmark of the state budget process.

To them, it is indicative of cluelessness on the part of the ministry on budget requirements.

According to Executive Director, CHRCR, Idris Miliki, the state budget office has over the years failed to meet the purpose of delivering acceptable and implementable budget.

He, therefore, tasked the state government to take more than a passing interest in preparation of budget.
