Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has presented an estimated 2022 budget of N233 billion to the State House of Assembly, IgbereTV reports.
He submitted the appropriation bill tagged ‘Budget of Sustainable Growth’ on Tuesday to lawmakers at the legislative chamber of the Assembly in the state capital.
The governor explained that the sum of N146 billion representing 63 per cent was for capital expenditure and N87.6 billion representing 37 per cent was for recurrent spending respectively.
He stated that this was slightly smaller than the 2021 budget of N237.52 billion, which had N157.56 billion and N79.96 billion as capital and recurrent expenditures respectively.
According to Governor El-Rufai, the allocations in the 2022 budget estimates reflect the political values and governance principles that have consistently guided the six previous budgets his administration has presented since 2015.
Like the previous budgets, he informed the lawmakers that the priorities of the bill were education, healthcare, and infrastructure.
The governor gave an assurance that his government would complete all ongoing projects before the end of his tenure.
