Wed Dec 11th, 2019 - Bauchi

Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State has presented N167,215,807,500 budget for the 2020 fiscal year to the House of Assembly for scrutiny.

Mohammed, while presenting the document tagged ‘Budget of Renewal of Hope’, said the figure was lower than the N196 billion prepared for 2019 by his predecessor, Mohammad Abubakar, “not because the government does not intend to spend much, but because we want a realistic and implementable budget”.

He put recurrent expenditure at N72, 615, 392, 214 43 (per cent) and capital expenditure at N94,600,410,286 (57 per cent).
