Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has said that citizens’ aspirations would always drive the budget process under his administration, to deepen participatory democracy and ensure good governance.

“Democracy is all about people. It is meaningless when the people are shut out of the processes of governance, which in fact revolves around them and their wellbeing. This is the reason we have called this meeting to allow you to make input into the budget process,” AbdulRazaq said yesterday at a town hall meeting on citizens’ engagement in the budget process in Ilorin.

At the meeting, citizens suggested things they wanted in the budget.
