Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to extend federal support to his 2023 Budget of Quantum Infinitum worth N330 billion.
The governor announced the budget at the state House of Assembly today before lawmakers.
The governor said, “We call on Mr. President to support this budget through the process of completing our industrialization process.”
Ayade said it is a citizen’s budget that is designed to focus on people to help them survive during this difficult transition.
He said, “we have appropriated N330 billion for 2023. 39 percent of the budget is for Recurrent Expenditure, which is N130 billion naira, while Capital Expenditure is taking 69 percent and that is, N200 billion to kinetically crystalize all the projects.
“The 39 percent is for payment of salaries, gratuities, pensions and everything that will address issues of extreme poverty, extreme criminality and create Cross River as a sane society which is the primary purpose of government.”
” The budget I have for you is a budget that focuses on people. Let my people survive during this difficult transition, let my people stay alive. Please give me the names of residents whether they are Cross River or not, let those people survive and live.”
He said 69 percent of the budget is intended to complete all the outstanding projects under his administration.
