Cross River Breaks Nigeria’s Budget Record Ever At N1 Trillion!

Gov.Ben Ayade of Cross River has presented a budget of N1.3 trillion for the 2018 fiscal year to the Cross River House of Assembly for deliberation and passage.

Ayade, who presented the budget on Thursday in Calabar, tagged the budget as “Budget of Kinetic Crystallisation’’, and said it was meant to crystallise what the state had achieved in the past two years of his administration.

According to the governor, the sum of N126billion was budgeted for the Ministry of Infrastructure. Seven billion naira was budgeted for the state job centre with a view to help train unemployed youths with marketable job skills. And N2billion was also budgeted for school feeding programme. In addition to that, N52billion was budgeted for social welfare to care for the aged.

My administration is human friendly and my desire is to ensure that every family has what to eat before going to bed,’’ the governor said.

The 2018 budget is far higher than the 2017 budget of N301billion.

  4. If the 2017 budget was 301 Billion, and oil prices has not tripled nor did the IGR of the state quadruple, so where is he going to get the resources to fund the budget?

    Otherwise, it would imply Cross Rivers is about to DOUBLE if not TRIPLE their debts in one year. The House of Assembly should open their eyes o!
